Validation

SYNOPSIS

Gracie has been absent from work for an entire week, since returning from a work trip. Her boss, Sheryl, thinks she knows why. Can a c-suite exec who didn’t grow up in the era of #MeToo and an introverted Millennial have an open, unapologetic conversation about appropriate workplace behavior?

A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:

Inspired by a personal experience I had, I wrote this piece with the goal of shedding light on interactions that perhaps once would have been considered to be in the gray area, where the offender could believe that “nothing happened,” but where something inappropriate indeed took place. It is my hope that anyone who may benefit from hearing that something inappropriate that happened to them wasn’t OK – as “minor” as they might tell themselves it was – will feel validated too. This project was recorded under self-isolation, with each cast member quarantining in their own home.
