work.txt is a show performed entirely by the audience about the gig economy, financial instability and bullsh*t jobs.
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.
Post show discussion: Creator Nathan Ellis will join us immediately after the performance on Tues 24 Oct in conversation with BIAF Artistic Director & Chief Executive Richard Wakely.

As we stack up our yellow blocks just to see them get knocked down again, think: yes, we can build them back better! Things can always be made better if they’re meaningful and worthy of our labour and our attention
Brilliantly conceived and highly original
work.txt is for people who enjoy karaoke, who loved The Office, and who have a knack for cringe moments. It's for those who hate their boss, who are a boss, and for those who are ondering what they are doing with their lives at work.
