Dumb Things is a tragi-comic three-hander that uses a faux 1930s American Deep South idiom in a post modern story of corporate espionage.

Jewish, Apache and Danny are three entry level computer programmers who work for a faceless multinational company.

In a desperate bid to make enough money to break free of their dead end careers they break into their building and begin a slow and hilariously befuddled climb to the company server and the 23rd floor.
