PAPER JAM - AN INTEROFFICE ROMANCE

(BODY COUNT: 9)

 

 

You are cordially invited to the holiday party from hell...

 

Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa la la la la, (bang!) la la la la. Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la, (choke!) la la la la. Don we now our gay apparel, Fa la la, la la la, (gasp!) la la la. Troll the anci...ent Yule tide carol, Fa la la la la, (thud!) la la la la. The annual holiday party at Cole Industries is off to a…well, bang. With news of their overnight closing, Chuck, the brash but loyal employee, chooses this moment to deliver a death threat…just as a shot rings out and Mr. Cole is found dead at his feet. As the staff scurries for safety, motives build in accord with the staggering body count. To find safety, Chuck and his merry band of misfits must travel through the trenches of hell (read: the mail room, executive offices, and Marketing Division) and only if they survive will they find the truth. Paper Jam – an Interoffice Romance (Body Count: 9) is a comedic romp of murder, revenge, and love – whether it be for affection or power. Boasting a cast of 12 actors wielding countless hats, see if you can predict who’ll be amongst the lucky survivors. They sure as heck can’t.
