Date: 06 May 1992 – 30 May 1992

Women employed in the sex industry work under appalling conditions — no sick pay, no holiday pay, no workcare and, in some of the cinemas, not even a female toilet.

DAILY GRIND looks at the life and times of Louie and Roxy, two women workers in the sex industry. It explores the issues that surround their lives and work with sensitivity and a great deal of humour.

DAILY GRIND was written by Vicki Reynolds who began her association with Melbourne Workers Theatre in 1989 as a trainee writer and went on to co—write the highly acclaimed TAXI with Patricia Cornelius in 1990. In 1991 Vicki became ill but managed to co—write NO FEAR with Patricia before her death in September. It is with great pride that we present this adaptation of her work.

Melbourne Workers Theatre is Australia’s only Art and Working Life Company based permanently in a workplace, the Jolimont Train Maintenance Depot. Established in 1987 to create theatre relevant to working class people, the Company has produced eight plays which have been performed at workplaces, community venues, educational institutions and correctional facilities.

Presented by: Melbourne Workers Theatre

Written by: an adaptation of Vicki Reynold’s play
