Pillbox Theatre’s debut play ‘Conscientious’ comes to Leeds for two nights this October before embarking on a national tour. 

Directed by Alex Chisholm, written by Adam Z. Robinson and performed by Rachel Ashwanden. 

Rebekah has just landed her first job. She’s everything they should want. Young. Keen. Conscientious.

But Michelle, her office ‘buddy,’ is also the office bully and Rebekah’s dream job is turning into a nightmare. Desperate, she turns for help to the ideals of her hero, her great-grandfather, a First World War conscientious objector.

But when pushed right to the edge what wins out? Ideals? Or survival?

Adam Z. Robinson’s new play finds the humour, and the horror, of office politics taken to extremes. It was originally developed as part of West Yorkshire Playhouse’s Furnace festival. The play is supported using funding provided by Arts Council England.
