“The Bush teams up with Unlimited Theatre to take 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?
“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, you 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 game show.” – from the Bush website.
Please buy your own ticket, on the Bush website, or at the box office in person.
NB – the Bush Theatre is no longer above the Bush pub but just around the corner and along the road.
Unlike when we go to the Almeida most people will have a fair trek home so not sure about a meal after as I guess that the show will finish about 21.30. A drink / coffee somewhere quiet after the event would be good. Any suggestions?
