Most of us have at one time or another been fired – let go, downsized, outsourced, canned. Join us for this quirky Labor Day special!

AM 1370/FM-HD91.5-2 presents the LA Theatre Works special, Fired: Tales of Jobs Gone Bad, airing Monday, September 5 at 1 p.m.  Shortly after landing a part in a play directed by her idol, Woody Allen, actress and commentator Annabelle Gurwitch is fired because of so-called “creative differences” between her and the director. Gurwitch channels her disbelief and bitterness into the creation of “Fired.”  She begins by calling up her friends and colleagues, and finds that everyone had a compelling and often hilarious story to tell.

Fired: Tales of Jobs Gone Bad was created by Annabelle Gurwitch, with a little help from her friends Carl Capotorto, Jason Kravits, Paul F. Tompkins, Jim Turner, Charlayne Woodard, and Roy Zimmerman.
