“You Will Get Used To It” by Preston Choi

Presented by: 
Department of Performance, Play & Design

On the ninth floor of a nondescript office building, there's a gaping hole in the wall oozing a dark liquid, and it sounds like someone's crying in there. But it's not your job to pay attention to that, that's Pat's job. You Will Get Used To It is a dark, Kafka-esque office comedy on bureaucracy and the inevitability of suffering—and the paper pushers who watch it all happen.

Directed by Rebecca Wear
