Killing Women

Photo: Ry Pepper

What happens when a paid assassin can't make the hit because she has to drop her daughter off at pre-school? The women in Killing Women, by Marisa Wegrzyn, have unusual careers but the usual work pressures: being passed over for promotions, trying to maintain work/life balance, being treated with condescension by co-workers. Oh, and ostensibly hard-boiled Abby has an extra problem: she just doesn't like killing women. The play is a little thin, but well-acted, entertaining, and occasionally quite funny. It would be even more entertaining with quicker scene changes and no intermission; every time it gets up a head of steam it interrupts itself.
