Serious Money

George Cadbury Hall
Thursday 16 November (19:30) - Saturday 18 November 2023 (19:30)
Drawing of Margaret Thatcher's head with the banner "Serious Money" advertising Caryl Churchill's play of the same name overlaying her eyes and mouth

by Caryl Churchill

Directed by Tim Trimingham Lee

Serious Money by Caryl Churchill is set in the late eighties, but its satirical dissection of capitalism gone bonkers, crimes gone unpunished, and greed gone unchecked hasn’t aged. In many ways a lot of where we are now can be traced to those heady days of massive change during the reign of Thatcher following Big Bang.

Part murder mystery, part farce, and all theatrical mayhem, Serious Money is history as serious entertainment for our uncertain present.

This amateur production of “Serious Money” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
