A Collection of two Full Length Plays: The Receptionist and Thugs.

The Repectionist:

A twisty comedy...Mr. Bock's poison Post-It note of a play - NY Times

Bock's intense initial focus on the routine goes to the heart of The Receptionist's pointed, painfully timely allegory...elliptical, provocative play... TimeOut New York

The Thugs:

Bock starts you off laughing, but leaves you with a chill... TimeOut New York

...a delightfully paranoid little nightmare that is both more chilllingly relistic and pointedly absurd than anything John Grisham ever dreamed up... NY Times

The Receptionist: Manhattan Theater Club, directed by Joe Mantello (Wicked)

The Thugs: Soho Rep, directed by Anne Kauffman
