When Annabelle Gurwitch was fired from a play by Woody Allen, she was devastated. While most of us wish we could be so lucky, Gurwitch took this previously unknown misery and went off on an expedition. The result features a hilarious laundry list of past jobs from friends—Illeana Douglas, Tim Allen, and Andy Dick; Fred Willard (fired because of a case of mistaken identity); and Jeff Garlin (fired because of a certain need to wear a hanger on his head)—that put everything in perspective. And that was only the beginning of a journey that has grown into a look at what it means to be both hired and fired as an American worker in the global economy.

Annabelle Gurwich will be joined by Robert Reich and others with interesting Fired! stories to tell at a pre-screening reception at 7p Friday May 19 at A Clean Well Lighted Place For Books, 601 Van Ness Street.
