(In Development)

By Seiriol Davies

A co-production with Boundless

In the UK, if you claim job seekers’ allowance for more than 12 months, you are classified as long-term unemployed. You then find yourself at the mercy of the strange, contradictory, capricious systems of Her Majesty‚Äôs Department for Work and Pensions and its contracted agencies.

Based in part on testimonies from whistleblowers and jobseekers, Scroungers is a new musical which follows Dawn, a struggling, optimistic key worker all fired up to make a difference, the group of people she’s in charge of getting jobs for, and the system that wants to squeeze them all until they pop.
