NEW DOCUMENTARY PLAY EXAMINES WHAT IT MEANS TO BOTH MAKE A LIVING AND CREATE A LIFE
Big Work is a new documentary play that examines our modern day relationship to our jobs, and the ripples this causes throughout our lives. What begins as a conversation about the work we do is woven into a larger story about identity, the definition of success, and ultimately what it means to both make a living and create a life. The play is based on interviews with 40 people from across the U.S. about what they do and what they value most in their lives. Accountants, artists, pharmacists, salesmen, people looking for work, and at-home parents shared stories about their dreams, about feeling invisible, about starting over, and about searching for employment and themselves.
After staged readings in Cambridge, Massachusetts in March 2016 and at The Actors Studio of Newburyport in September 2016, Big Work is poised to hit the road.
