Demi tried to get employment support allowance

Demi tried to get employment support allowance because she was too ‘unwell’ to work full time

Demi did get employment support allowance

“Can I have a sick note for 6 months to continue my employment support allowance?”

“That’s not a good idea, we need to get you back to work”


£88.45 is a live performance talk about labour and mental health. It is about Demi being worried. She is worried, her friends are getting fired, her Uncle is forced to stop working and a lover is crying at work. Demi is worried about them and about herself.
