    A game show. A nurse. A chicken shop. Dolly Parton. A golden umbrella. Making it rain. Quite a lot of hopping. Some bingo. Zero hours contracts. You better work bitch.

    I Hate it Here is an interactive devised piece about zero hours contracts and instability. It centres on Plang, an elderly care worker who loves a boogie, Tara, a nurse with a penchant for Anne Robinson, and Spud, a teenage fast-food worker who would just love a date with fit Clare. Join them for their shift, but expect some interruptions from the BIG BOSS.

    You will be asked to participate in game shows, sign up for shifts and have the power to change the outcome of the show.

    There’ll be bingo, banging tunes and a glittery curtain. All of this could be yours if you just sign here _______________________.

    I Hate it Here accompanying sound peice, by Hattie North. 

    Put your headphones on. 

    Yawn and stretch and try to come to life.

    Close your eyes for the full effect. 

    What are you waiting for, put your back in it. 

    Work.
