This musical examination of 26 people from all walks of life undoubtedly proves that “it’s more than just a job.”
Dani Corbishley, the talented choreographer and director of Working, explains that this is an every human play. “As such, the cast will be presented as genderless humans until such time as they become the characters within the show. The show is “fluid”, dance and blocking will intermix during both song and dialogue portions. Characters morph, taking their props and costume pieces from their onstage lockers, dismantling a scene then assembling the next. As one worker ends their story, another begins. Seven talented actors never leave the set, which is made up entirely from used construction materials you would see at a worksite.
Music, under the direction of Brent McLaren, includes songs by James Taylor and Lin-Manual Miranda.
Working, with some mature content, is sure to set your heart pumping and your feet stomping!
