How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying
24th May to 1st June 2019
Shirley Burke Theatre, Parkdale
How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying is a story about the triumph of the common man amid the buffoonery of big business. When a restless, creative, and ambitious window washer named J. Pierrepont Finch happens upon a book entitled 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying', he decides to begin his rise the corporate ladder.
With the book’s instructions and a dose of his own cleverness, Finch starts by landing a job in the mailroom at the World-Wide Wicket Company, before quickly gaining promotions and outsmarting his scheming, snivelling rival, Frump - who also happens to be the boss's nephew-- until finally reaching the very top of the organization. From the very beginning, Finch has had the love and support of Rosemary, a marriage-minded secretary who recognizes Finch’s potential, and finds his innocent demeanour endearing. But in his single-minded pursuit of the top job, Finch is in danger of discounting Rosemary’s love. In a moment of crisis, Finch’s manual to success can no longer help him: he must rely on his own wits, and ultimately, his heart, to save the day.
