The Washington Post: What We’re Up Against

Theresa Rebeck’s salty office comedy “What We’re Up Against” is a swift and merrily vicious kick in the pants. It’s a fast satire about a talented woman and the dull, bigoted men who rule her workplace …. Rebeck’s wrathful, foulmouthed script keeps the energy high, and at the small Keegan Theatre (which has the D.C. premiere of this 2011 play), director Susan Marie Rhea creates a bright, brisk production that nails the play’s most pivotal moments.

DC Metro Theatre Arts: What We’re Up Against

Near the end of What We’re Up Against, Theresa Rebeck’s incisive comedy about workplace sexism—just opened in a kick-ass production at The Keegan Theatre—a question is posed by Eliza, a very talented architect whom we’ve been watching be screwed by prick power in the office: “They said it wasn’t like this anymore.

Broadway World: What We’re Up Against

If there ever was a show that captured the edginess of this election season, it’s Theresa Rebeck’s howler of a comedy, What We’re Up Against. In Susan Marie Rhea’s brilliant staging, Rebeck’s whip-smart sense of humor is on full display. And given the battle-of-the-sexes plotline, it is without question the one show that Hilary Clinton and her staff need to see-they’ll know every character on-stage. They’ll also recognize the futility of a highly-qualified woman forced to struggle against male mediocrity.

The struggle continues, but this one is a classic.
