Red Stitch Actors Theatre and the ACTU have combined to bring an exciting drama about work as an incursion to schools in Term 2

The play, WORK! It’s an experience, explores the ups and downs of getting your first job. It follows the progress of three newbies as they figure out where they fit in the world of work.

Tim’s new boss is cool, but wants to pay him cash-in-hand. Sonja’s not sure if her new co-worker is a bit bitchy or a real bully, while Ngaire has a boss that’s a touch too friendly.  With lots of laughs and a little pathos, Work! It’s an experience brings real workplace situations to life and encourages young people to speak up if something is not right.

Written by actor and playwright Peter Hougton, the play brings a cast of young actors from Red Stitch together in a fast paced drama written specifically for Years 9 and 10.

The play is being offered to schools in tandem with a panel discussion about employee rights and responsibilities featuring employer and union representatives.

WORK! It’s an experience is being offered to schools for a strictly limited season in Melbourne and Geelong from 6 May. The incursion costs $1500 plus GST. To book or get more information, call Edunity 9534 2833 or visit

ACTU Worksite for Schools is sponsored by the AEU, IEU and other unions.
