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 play without actors performed entirely by the audience. It explores themes of contemporary work, automation, and always-on working culture. The story is about a person in a city somewhere who has stopped working, and the story is an attempt by the audience to work together to figure out why. The play is performed entirely by the audience, through various means.
