Series of bitter-sweet comic monologues, starring Tom Allen.

Tom works in the complaints department of a large furniture retailer, spending his days in a gloomy underground office cut off from the world. Adrift in a sea of correspondence, we hear his mundane days unfold via the posters, signs, letters, faxes, emails, text messages, and PostIt notes that he reads out loud for us to hear.
