Synopsis/Details: 

From the late-90s to the turn of the millennium the world’s financial sector exploded with the emergence of the dotcom era. The bloated stock market turned everyday people into millionaires and billionaires overnight. The possibilities were endless…

….then the bubble burst. And the same everyday people – who weren’t millionaires and billionaires - lost their jobs, their life savings, their dignity… everything.

Welcome to the world of BARBARA, JAKE and ZACH.

These three unrelated Gen-Xers used to harbor admirable aspirations… but they were ultimately buried by greed (ZACH), prudence (BARBARA) and delusion (JAKE).

When they suddenly find themselves unemployed, their lives are changed forever. Their immediate, myopic attempts to find work lead them to a series of bizarre and humiliating interviews with a smorgasbord of outlandish characters.

Eventually all three are forced to rethink their lives, reinvent their ambitions and rediscover their dormant desires. But to do so, they’ll need to confront their demons, overcome self-doubt, and break a lifetime of bad habits. In the end, their turbulent journey takes them to an unexpected destination . . . their true calling.

PINK SLIP PARTY is a topical and charming coming-of-age story that demonstrates our dreams can be realized as long as we believe in ourselves.

The Writer: J.B. Storey

Once upon a time I dreamed about becoming a 'working writer'. But, life had other plans. Good, enduring plans. So, nowadays I work on being a writer, in my ' spare time '. And every once-in-awhile I get lucky and win an accolade or two. I've also even been blessed with seeing some of my work come to life on screen and stage. But no matter the outcome, I continue to write. As I love the process. It's a constant state of learning and growing. There is nothing comparable to conjuring and crafting a narrative out of the vastness of the imagination. It is a wonderful creative and cathartic outlet that I hope will be a part of who I am, for as long as I am. Go to bio
