A co-production with The Bush Theatre
Casino and Queenie used to be hedge fund managers. Before the financial crisis of 2008, that is. Now, in an inspired – or desperate – career move, they’ve turned to performance art to share their stories of how to make (and lose) billions from economic downturn.
Playing with £10,000 in actual pound coins, audiences are invited to bet long, short or hedge, as Casino and Queenie guide them through a series of interactive games that demonstrate how the world’s economic system came to the precipice of collapse.
So, risk takers to the front, risk averse to the back. Welcome to MONEY the game show.
We’ve teamed up with The Bush Theatre to take a playful and politically sharp look at the roots of the 2008 financial crisis and its ongoing impact in 2013, as well as tackling the bigger questions: What is money? What is it worth? What happens when we stop believing in it?
Try the Bush’s Money Personality Quiz to find out what kind of spender you are – and why you might need MONEY the game show in your life…
“This playful, thoughtful and riotously entertaining piece is right on the money… a chilling reminder of how easily the pound in your pocket could be worth nothing at all.” **** – The Guardian
