Stop. Rewind. By Melissa Bubnic
How well do you know the person at the next desk?
Stop. Rewind. is a deft and recognisable comedy with heart that begs the question: is it too late to live the life you’ve always wanted?
As a disparate group of co-workers at a departmental office struggle to hold onto their dreams, we glimpse the series of compromises that has led each to their place in this eclectic community. Trevor is worried he’s wasted his life. Dim wants to be a musician but he’s been in this ‘temporary’ admin gig for thirteen months now. Heather is perfectly all right, except for being too old and fat to ever have sex again. Tabitha is fine with having sex, only it’s with her married co-worker Grant. And Nina’s trying to hang on to her family home without the help of her couch potato philosopher husband.
Life continues at its painfully familiar pace until a catastrophic event in the department forces everyone to examine their own lives, what they want, and what they are really prepared to sacrifice to get it.
