Human Resources
by Daniel Hirsch
PlayLab and Response Session

Kate is having a rough Monday. On top of the fact that she has a new coworker
named Alan who won’t shut up, she’s realizing that her job in the User System
QA team might be utterly devoid of meaning. Also, she’s probably going to
die… As the Mondays accumulate, Kate’s small world is upended when Alan
wrangles her into an unexpected friendship. The bond between this pair moves
from strained to surprisingly tender. However, neither can predict how the
forces of late-stage, tech-fueled capitalism or one’s impending mortality might
muck up their non-romantic, workplace romance.

by Rachael Carnes

Based on a real chapter in American education, in which babies were leased
