Joke

Furlough is over for Jordan and, like many of us, he’s returned back to work. However once there he finds himself caught up in a complaints procedure delivered by his so-called ‘woke’ manager. Jordan’s accused of using offensive language in the workplace, language that he claims was intended as a joke. A joke that will put both his job and personal life under threat.

*Please note this play explores themes of racism and contains some very strong language.*

Presented in Association with Citizen’s Theatre
