Hedge your bets at MONEY The Gameshow
The Bush Theatre's next production is MONEY The Gameshow, a co-production with Unlimited Theatre running from January 31 till March 2.
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 real pound coins, members of the audience are invited to bet long, short and hedge, as game show hosts Casino and Queenie challenge you to play a series of high stake games that demonstrate how the world’s economic system came to the brink of collapse.
So, risk takers to the front, risk averse to the back. Welcome to MONEY The Gameshow.
The play takes a playful and politically sharp look at the roots of the financial crisis and its ongoing impact, as well as tackling some bigger questions: What is money? What is it worth? And what happens when we stop believing in it?
