“Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do” is a book by Studs Terkel, published in 1974 which became a smash hit and later on inspired a Broadway musical. The book is a deep penetration of American thought and feeling and it evokes the lives of more than 130 men and women in their own words: candid, insightful and honest.

Anyone who has ever punched a time clock will be surprised and inspired by this compelling account of the everyday lives of common men and women. The hopes, dreams, joys and concerns of the average working American are the focus of this play. Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women that the world so often takes for granted: the secretary, the mason, the housewife, etc.

This play is an adaptation of the Broadway musical : Working.
