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.


This performance will happen in a Chilled Environment.

Chilled performances are open to all audience members. There won’t be any changes to the show itself but movement in and out of the auditorium is allowed, there is less emphasis on the audience being quiet during the performance, and there will be a separate chill-out room for any audience members that require it. They are suitable for anyone who might need to make a noise or ask a question to their companion during a show, older people who are experiencing dementia or Alzheimer’s, those who may be nervous about being in a traditional theatre environment, Autistic people, people with sensory and communication needs and anyone who would benefit from a more chilled environment.
