A play with children for adults. Five young girls tell the story of J., whose house burns down, taking with it everyone and everything she has ever known. From this moment, a singular journey begins. Performed in 600 HIGHWAYMEN’s arresting theatrical style and featuring the original songs of David Cale, Employee of the Year asks what it is to find your own way through life.
