Hate your job? Come work for us.
This is a show about work.
But the worker isn’t here, so it’s down to you.
You’ll clock in at the beginning.
You’ll get short breaks at regular intervals.
You’ll work in a team, and under your own initiative.
You will be your own boss.
You will be free.
work.txt is a show performed entirely by the audience about the gig economy, financial instability and bullshit jobs.

WINNER: TRC International Innovation Award 2021.
NOMINEE: VAULT Innovation Award 2020.
'Fascinating, and quite fun too (...) one of the things this show does through its own cool, calculated mode of operation, is actually bring an audience together, while acknowledging and highlighting our differences, in a way that theatre often claims to do, but seldom actually does.'
'The quality of the writing around this situation is eloquent and sometimes beautiful... the overall atmosphere is poignant.'
'It felt like a church service, the mixture of stumbling reading aloud and earnestness, overlaid with something haunting and magical.'
