In theatre company Kaleider’s new show ‘The Money’, you’re given a big wad of dollars and told to choose how you want to spend them. But before you immediately go out and book a ticket, it’s a teensy bit more complicated than that. You can only spend the money once you have come to a unanimous decision with the other audience members in the room on where to put your bucks.
This intriguing new piece of game-theatre has the cash on the table in front of you and the players trying to come to a decision in two hours. If no decision is reached, the cash is rolled over to the next event. So where’d you spend it? In setting up a new cat café? Donate it to the Monster Raving Loony Party election campaign (I know I would)? Where the cash goes depends entirely on your skills of persuasion. In the 11 times it’s been played previously, the outcome has always been different.
The runs at Battersea Arts Centre April 15–May 1 (Wed–Fri) and there’s a free one-off performance at the Houses of Parliament (although real money isn’t used on this performance because the HoP can’t be used for making profit) on April 21 at 6.30pm.
