The term Workie Ticket is a Geordie colloquialism, which means someone who likes to push one’s luck- a chancer or a cheeky trouble-maker. When JoJo Kirtley was a young lass, her Grandad Joe would call her, “a proper little workie ticket” and the nick-name stuck. So, when thinking of a name for her theatre company, it seemed the perfect choice. In 2017, Workie Ticket Theatre was founded by JoJo Kirtley and in June 2018, Lindsay Nicholson officially joined the company.
Our mission is to shake things up, be bold, push our luck within the theatre world and empower people through our work.
