If robots are taking our jobs, why are we all still working so hard? A group of actors (actually at work on stage) delve into a dialectical exchange about Universal Basic Income, the Green New Deal, and the American economy while completing a series of strange, repetitive, and entertaining tasks that may or may not be accomplishing anything. The first in a trilogy of plays exploring the problems of 21st-century global capitalism, the meaning of work, and the value of humans in an increasingly automated age.

About Limited Liability Theater Company
Limited Liability Theater Company uses original, unconventional, dialectical texts to create highly theatrical works addressing vital contemporary questions, myths and assumptions. The company has shown work at The Brick, chashama, Signature Theatre, Prelude, CATCH, The Invisible Dog, Little Theatre at Dixon Place, and more. Like the business structure from which it draws its name, this collaboration of McFeely Sam Goodman, Sarah Hughes, and Lucy Kaminsky is a pass-through entity; it has no offices, no staff, no annual budgets, and no bylaws.
