The Workplace Tragedy

The Workplace Tragedy

Storyboard Text

  • "Did ya hear? The Chargers lost 49-0."
  • "You've been promoted."
  • Wide shot of a woman waking up in her room. She is sleeping in a feminine nightgown, but when she dresses up, we see her tie her hair back so it looks short and she puts on masculine clothing. She looks like a man.
  • It cuts to that same woman (who is now dressed as a man and called "John") working in an office, surrounded by men. They are all focused on their work but the beeping and clicking noises are broken up by them talking about football and how annoying and out of place their wives are.
  • "John's" manager calls "him" into his office and tells him that he's getting a promotion that will also increase his pay. The other men in the office congratulate him and pat him on the back.
  • The camera cuts to a different level of the building, where there are only women working. They all talk about getting their hair and nails done. They gossip about one another and talk about the new diets that they're trying out (stereotypical women from the eyes of a man). They don't appear to be working.
  • There is a fast forward and we see everyday life in the office. Things are going really well for our main character, who has received a raise. The others in the office still have no idea that the main character is really a woman.
  • One day, at a meeting, she somehow slips and the main character reveals is actually a woman. Her co-workers are outraged, and some of them refuse to work. They tell tell the manager that she should be in the lower level, working with the other women. Or that she should find a different job.
