'This deceptively simple piece is definitely on the money. It turns conversation into urgent, playful theatre'
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

The Money. Theatre where YOU the audience is in charge.

As UK theatre opens back up here is the show that brings people into the same room and asks ‘What can we do together that we cannot do apart?'

Audience members can book to be either Players or Silent Witnesses. The Players have 60 minutes to decide what to do with a pile of cash. If they agree, they can take the money. If they run out of time, then the money will roll over to the next show. The Silent Witnesses look on but can choose to join in, right up until the last second. But where will you stand?

Kaleider, one of the world’s leading companies in extraordinary live arts, presents The Money®. The show that can lead to some incredible acts of kindness, some moments of madness and always a fascinating conversation about the value of money and what is important.

Come and chose to make a difference. Time’s ticking…

WHAT TO EXPECT

The Money is a perfect hybrid of immersive theatre and game that guarantees that no two shows are ever the same. You can choose to be a Silent Witness and watch, or a Player and take part in the action, coming to a unanimous decision about how to spend a pot of real cash. Which will you be?

Become a Player and work with other Players to decide what to spend the group’s money on. You have 60 minutes to come to a decision. If you decide unanimously in the allotted time you get to take the money away and spend it. But if you don’t agree with your fellow players, you relinquish your privilege to spend the money and it rolls over to the next show.

Become a Silent Witness if you’re the quiet observing type and you can watch as the group of Players attempt to decide how to spend the money. And if you want to voice your opinion you can become a Player at any point by buying your way in.

Spend the money on whatever you want. Be as creative as you like. Just keep within the law. Time is ticking…
