What We're Up Against

Raven Theatre
6157 N. Clark St Chicago

Set in a highly competitive architecture firm, What We're Up Against takes an explosive look at the complicated battle of the sexes raging across Cubicle Land. A funny yet insightful view of what it means to be female in a male-dominated career and one woman's response when she tires of slamming into the glass ceiling.

Presented by Compass Theatre

Third Coast Review - Highly Recommended

"...What We’re Up Against is artfully staged by director Lauren Shouse. The excellent cast and crew of this new company include many Chicago theater veterans, including Echaka Agba as Eliza, the ambitious architect; and Denise Hoeflich as Janice, her female colleague. Shouse guides the cast of five briskly through a series of scenes set in the offices and conference rooms of this firm, as the participants work through the details of the two projects that are consuming their time. Oh, and a greet deal of drinking gets done. Everyone seems to have a bottle (scotch, vodka) and they drink it straight up."

Picture This Post - Highly Recommended

"...In this writer's view, lesser hands managing this tie-it-up-with-a-bow type script could easily fumble. Director Lauren Shouse seems to know she has top tier talent to work with--- the casting choices-all-- seeming to be the first master stroke. Agba fans will not be disappointed. She creates her character so completely that by the end of her first scene we feel like we've known her for ages. How perfect that Shouse positions Agba in the shadows during many scene changes as an observer - where her high heeled boot physical presence alone dominates and tells us this is herstory unfolding. Similarly, Kurysz creates his suck-up Webber character so convincingly that we know even he knows he's full of it."
