“Very funny, odd, clever, brimming with interesting characters and excellent dialogue, made me laugh out loud… I can’t stop thinking about it.”

Terry Gilliam

A gently anarchic oddbod loses a succession of jobs while being drawn into an epic battle between the forces of good and evil.

Fired is a burlesque epic set in a world out of joint, a heroic journey of unself-discovery, a forgiving study of contemporary minds at the end of their tether, a heart-cooling, life-denying violin sonata as Rome burns, a good old fashioned supernatural love-story, an anarchic moonwalk into the Other Place and a black, situational comedy, in the tradition of English losers gloriously, pointlessly and pathetically fighting a battle they cannot win.

Nothing like Fired exists today — except the world itself.
