work.txt

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 by the Audience. A show that explores the gig economy, financial instability and automation.
