terraNOVA Collective Presents Will Work For By Dacyl Acevedo
In Residence at IRT Theater: August 27- September 30, 2013
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.

NY Theater Review:
Theatre is Easy Review:
"Dacyl is one of the most present actors I know. Her superb writing and skillful ability to inhabit the skin of so many different people are on full display during her one woman show. If you want to see what it means to truly connect with others then you need to see this show. Dacyl is clearly on top of her craft."

Will Work For was produced , in part, through Kori Rushton and IRT's Residency Season. (irttheater.org) The NY premiere of Will Work For was presented in the 10th Annual soloNOVA Arts Festival with terraNOVA Collective in 2013. Sections of the show were featured in the Culture Project's IMPACT 2012 Festival of Political Art and Symphonics Live! at Bowery Poetry Club. The show was developed with Tamilla Woodard in part through The Field Artist Residency program, supported by Lambent Foundation. Will Work For is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization.
Tucked away in the old Archive Building in Greenwich Village NYC, IRT is a grassroots theater development laboratory providing space, support and community for independent artists.
