Dramatis Personae One (f), Two (f), Three (f)

Synopsis "One is a burned-out but still pompous human resources professional who interviews Two, an even more burned-out technical writer, for a new position at a company run entirely by women. But does that mean that they are feminists--or that they are better managers than most men? Two isn't sure, and is forced to play a lively game of word choice so as to offend no one . . . until she spots a large bird (eagle? vulture?) nesting outside her interviewer's office. Three, although a bit of a 'ditz,' is honest enough to help Two clarify the really important questions about employment."
