Description

Hate your job? Come work for us. 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 about the gig economy, financial instability and bullshit jobs. **** (Guardian). 'Electric... I have no hesitation in recommending' (Lyn Gardner).

I really enjoyed the concept of the show. The audience built the set in which action was set. The protagonist was self selecting and audience members read the script that a unattended printer churned out.
It felt like there were a lot of themes such as the gig economic, that were touched on and not developed. So it all felt a bit ragged.
Mostly I would liked to have played with the bricks for longer.
