Directed by Aimee Todoroff, opening night is scheduled for June 11 at 7:30 PM.

In Office Politics, press notes state, "when a white male co-worker makes an off-the-cuff racially insensitive remark to his boss’s black female assistant, what seems like a harmless joke snowballs, suddenly catapulting the ad sales office of a women's magazine into turmoil. Threats are made, loyalties tested and contrasting beliefs about power, race and class surface, resulting in an explosion of shocking reveals, lies and accusations, ultimately leaving their department in utter shreds."

The production features set design by Sandy Yaklin, with costume design by Deanna R Frieman, lighting design by Joshua Benghiat and sound design by Daniel Spitaliere.

Playwright Marcy Lovitch wrote and acted in her one-woman show, Dirty Laundry, which she performed in the first and second New York International Fringe Festival (FringeNYC), at New York’s Independent Art HERE, the Womankind Festival of One-Woman Shows (One Dream Theater, NYC) and Philadelphia's Womenspeak Festival (Walnut Street Studio Theater).

Other plays include A Hollywood Ending (developed at Primary Stages’ Einhorn School of Performing Arts, ESPA), The Girl with No Mazel and the screenplays for "Rini’s 40th Birthday" and "Media Darling." Office Politics is presented Off-Broadway by the Long View Theater Company.
