Teaser for the short play "TEAM PLAYER".
A young man comes to the big city to work at a large coffee shop chain. He does well in the interview, is hired, and it soon turns out that he has the perfect personality for the job. And in case he doesn’t, he soon will. Furthermore, it turns out that each coffee shop in the chain is a perfect place where all the employees walk and talk and think and dress the same. They all love each other and they all love the customers. And all the customers are perfect too. And they’re all the same. Just like the bosses; the same. Everywhere. And they all love each other and they love their bosses and they love their employees (that’s why the employees are all perfect, they listen to the bosses), but most importantly, they love YOU. Would you like something to drink with that? If you sign up for a VIP card we’ll give you 10% off on your next purchase at any of our stores. Thank you, and have a nice day.
