Alexander Zeldin and Company presents Beyond Caring

Wed 13 Jul 2016 – Sat 16 Jul 2016

Four people arrive to work the night shift in a meat factory. They meet for the first time. They are employed as cleaners by a temp agency. They are all on zero hours contracts. Every shift, they clean. Every four hours, they take a break. They drink tea or coffee together, read magazines, chat. As it gets light, they go home, or to another job. The cycle goes on. And on. Strangers. Until something stirs, until isolated people get too lose to one another, too fast. Through investigation, first hand experience and with the involvement of those on zero hours contracts, Alexander Zeldin’s brutally honest, darkly humorous play exposes the stories of an invisible class.

By Alexander Zeldin and written through devising with the company. Designed by Natasha Jenkins. First produced at the Yard Theatre, London and subsequently at the National Theatre.
