‘Whatever you say. Boss.’

Watching.
Training.
Clowning.
Dreaming.
Pretending.
Mourning.
Burning.

Stare at the wall. Paint your face. Burn your dog. Cry harder. Why do you work? Why are you working so hard? What’s it all about?

Produced by the award-winning Elegy, Odd Jobs is an electric series of short plays excavating our relationship with work. Writer-director Madison Gerringer interrogates the workers’ relationship to their job, and possibly themselves. 

Funny, ephemeral and heart-breaking, Odd Jobs asks us why cant we stop working? And what would we be willing to do to pay the rent?

There will be joy, pain, and seals.

So why don’t you take a sick day, and join us?

Kaustubh Vaidya

Kaustubh Vaidya trained at LAMDA after completing the acting diploma at Central. He is energetic, loves movement and likes to hold the door open for people who are a bit far away so they have to run a little. Before training at drama school, Kaustubh spent almost a decade in a corporate job with plenty of work but had no interest in it and now he has finally found his passion in the industry where work is hard to come by. As a result, Kaustubh loves skiing but currently can’t afford it. Having done plenty of odd jobs and being the odd one out in most of them, Kaustubh, for once, fits in perfectly in this ensemble for Odd jobs. Obviously, he is multi-roling.
