While you sleep, millions of people are working. This is their story.

Unfolding over a single night shift, an unlikely group of night workers – who have more in common than they realise – are embroiled in a life-changing series of events.

What follows is an epic tale of ordinary people doing extraordinary things, as an ordinary evening turns into an extraordinary night.

Written by celebrated playwright Paula B. Stanic, this gripping new play is performed using an innovative combination of spoken English, BSL, visual vernacular and creative captioning – giving a unique and startling window into the often overlooked lives of night workers.

Featuring Zoo Co’s signature blend of ensemble movement, projection, sound and light, Night Shift is an unmissable theatre experience that will leave you wondering why the people and things we overlook are often those we rely on the most

Age guidance: 14+

All Zoo Co performances are relaxed as standard. All performances are creatively captioned, use BSL and are suitable for deaf/hard of hearing audiences. The performance on Friday 24 November is audio described.

Zoo Co is supported by Arts Council England, The Foyle Foundation, Postcode Society Trust and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.

Night Shift is presented as part of This is Croydon – London Borough of Culture.
