‘WORK MAKES YOU FREE’ WRITTEN BY MICHAEL ROSS
DIRECTED BY JAMES MCKENDRICK
A PRODUCTION IN ARRANGEMENT WITH NICK QUINN, THE AGENCY (LONDON) LTD
Full production debuted at VAULT Festival 2018.
Adam is absolutely loving being Employment Minister, singer-songwriter Kirsty cries in the shower every morning before heading off to work at the Job Centre, struggling actress Willow must toil unpaid in a pound shop or lose her benefits, and banker Jane is disgusted by the sight of closed curtains as she leaves for Canary Wharf every morning.
Michael Ross’s biting satire delivers a piece very much for our times, reflecting on the dignity – and many indignities – of labour. It explores how some people are defined by their job, whilst for others it’s the main obstacle to becoming who they truly are. It is a funny, smart and ingenious examination of what work means in Twenty-First Century Britain.
‘As nuanced and clever as it is outrageous… a very funny production’
‘Don’t miss this gem of a show… you’ll see four great actors go live without a net in this excellent play’
‘A current, relevant commentary on the aspects of life we see every day – it touches the full spectrum of working life in the modern age.’
British Theatre Guide
‘Sharp and imaginative – in one moving scene, tears quietly rolled down the face of the man sitting along from me.’
Once a Week Theatre
“An exceptional piece of writing… intelligent, stimulating, brimming with a satire that’s very, very funny’
