Today's the day, right? That's what you said. What you prophesized. Today's the day we finish the job?

We're all in the business of telling stories. Building narratives. Constructing meaning. To keep ourselves safe, to make sense of the senseless, to explain the unexplainable, or simply just to pass the time. But what happens when the stories we inhabit begin to crumble? How can we still manufacture hope in a world that's falling apart?

Idle, They Yammer is an ode to hard graft, a metaphysical conversation between people trapped by the very thing they've spent their entire lives building. This edition was published to coincide with the premiere at The Other Room, Cardiff, in May 2023.
