JOKE

***** “… a sharp, brilliant and beautifully constructed workplace comedy about some of the key dilemmas of the age… as breathlessly quick-witted as it is hard-hitting and significant.” The Scotsman

“This is next level stuff… raw, honest and totally unflinching. It’s still hilarious, but it packs a punch… and it’s absolutely devastating.” The Tempohouse

Written by Johnny McKnight
Directed By Jemima Levick
Performed by Michael Guest, Laura Lovemore & Ewan Miller

Furlough is over for Jordan and, like many of us, he’s returned back to work. However once there he finds himself caught up in a complaints procedure delivered by his so-called ‘woke’ manager. Jordan’s accused of using offensive language in the workplace, language that he claims was intended as a joke. A joke that will put both his job and personal life under threat.

World Premiere – Oran Mor, 20-25 September 2021
Presented in Association with Citizen’s Theatre
