Get A Real Job

Get A Real Job | Birmingham Repertory Theatre | Thursday 9th August | 7 - 9pm

Deciding on a career as an artist is not without its challenges. The constant explanation and justification of your work in response to worried parents, fretting about the financial implications and questioning the stability of their child's chosen profession. Do you follow your vocation or settle in to salaries and sick pay?

Get A Real Job coincides with the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of Romeo and Juliet which explores the generational divide in Shakespeare's play. Bringing together three young artists and their family members, through activities and discussion, we attempt to break down these barriers and talk openly about the importance of pursuing what you love.

This is part of the RSC's Talking about my Generation event series, and is presented in partnership with Free Radical and The REP.

Tickets are free but please book in advance.
