The Secretaries

Written by Lisa Kron, Babs Davy, Dominique Dibbell, Peg Healey, Maureen Angelo
Directed by Beck Keller


Patty is thrilled to join the secretarial pool at the Cooney Lumber Mill, but she soon begins to feel that all is not right—the enforced diet of Slim-Fast shakes, the strange clicking language between the girls, the monthly disappearance of a lumberjack. By the time Patty discovers murder is part of these office killers’ skill set, it’s too late to turn back! In the guise of satiric exploitation-horror, The Secretaries takes an unflinching look at the warping cultural expectations of femininity.

​”The Secretaries is a sustained, amusing look at the fine line between aggression and assertiveness.”
— The New Yorker
