Live Collision International Festival presents a double bill of Workshy (Katy Baird) and 27 (Peter McMaster)


This is a show about work.

Some people work to make money. Some people work to feel fulfilled. Some people don’t work at all.

Katy has been serving customers for the last two decades, working everywhere from pubs and fast food chains to sandwich shops and milkshake bars. Now she works in an office doing admin.

Some of these jobs she has loved and some she has hated.

This is her story on the up and downs of what it means to serve you – the public.

Through the lens of labor and work, Workshy is a powerful and honest portrayal of the relationship between class and aspiration.

“Really enjoyed Katy Kaird’s ‘Workshy’ … she tells you what she’s going to do, but then repeatedly surprises; thoughtful good fun.”
Maddy Costa, The Guardian

Devised and Performed by Katy Baird

Workshy was originally developed for the SPILL National Platform, Ipswich and has recently been commissioned as part of the SPILL International Platform, where it will be performed at The Barbican, London.




Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Brian Jones all died aged 27.

As Peter McMaster reaches 27, he contemplates this age of change, using autobiography and ritual to explore this tipping point between life and death.

Two performers push themselves towards bodily extremes, towards danger and potential ends.

Embracing moments of physical excess, 27 turns the threat of untimely death into a vibrant celebration of being.

Performed by Peter McMaster and Nick Anderson

Peter McMaster is the recipient of the In Between Times Wild Card Commission for IBT15, at which he premiered 27 in February 2015.
