New Diorama and Incoming Festival present 'work_from_home' - new online theatrical experience


THIS year, New Diorama Theatre has been forced to cancel its Incoming Festival due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Instead, it is presenting work_from_home, an entirely free, online theatrical experience.

work_from_home is an interactive play performed entirely by participants on a Zoom call, about when things stop working. It is an entirely new, digital, interactive adaptation of Nathan Ellis’ play work.txt, which was nominated for an Innovation Award at VAULT Festival 2020 and would have formed part of Incoming Festival 2020.

You will log on, you will do nothing, you will contribute, you will be essential.

work_from_home is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
