- The Financial Times

A powerful new play about work, automation and capitalism’s impact – a show for anyone who’s ever put in a hard day’s graft.

With 256 possible versions written, rehearsed and ready to perform, The Machine will select what we see – live, on the night, right in front of our eyes. From the Luddites’ nineteenth century war against new technology through to London, Liverpool, Lagos and beyond. 

'design by Hazel Low was ingenious'

'Hazel Low’s factory-floor set of pipework and conveyor belts creates a persuasive workplace atmosphere'
