“work.txt is for those who hate their boss, who are a boss, and for 

those who are wondering what they are doing with their lives at work. “

— The Skinny


“Brilliantly conceived and highly original”

— The Scotsman


“Unmissable and moving beyond measure”

— Edinburgh Guide


“Keeps its audience guessing, laughing, 

and even at one point, singing”

— North West End


“Entertaining, thought-provoking”

— Arts Desk


“A joy to be part of”

— Fest

work.txt by Nathan Ellis (UK) designs a welcoming space for collectively processing “working” in capitalist metropolitan cities. There are building blocks, reflections, observations and tasks — the only thing missing here is the labour, and this is where the audiences are invited to step in.

During the 60 minute duration of the show, audiences will follow prompts from the screen, working and laughing together towards an experience built in collaboration with one another.

Clever, joyful, and surprisingly beautiful. Do you hate your job? Come work with us.
