Beautifully relevant..."New York Theatre Review


"Dacyl Acevedo's funny and fierce chronicle of struggling to survive the Great Recession is an affecting mix of the personal and political..."  Union Tribune San Diego

Unemployment and the adventure begins! On a journey into the unknown, Dacyl Acevedo has to dodge through booby-trapped interviews, face demons of her employment past, hold tight to her dream while surviving the economic crash. Will Work For is a farcical and satirical journey into the new world of work and tells of how one person is surviving, told through the art of storytelling, clown and spoken word physical theatre.
