Presented by Nathan Ellis

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

Supported by Arts Council England


“Call it neat. or call it sneaky, but there is something particularly satisfying about a show about work that gets the audience to do all the work.” Lyn Gardner

“Ellis lights up the layer between reality and what we see. […] The intensity never lets up” – The Guardian

“Ellis’ writing is dense and lyrical, full of shimmering turns of phrases.” * * * * – The Stage.
