“As many of you may be aware, the UK charity sector is estimated to have lost £6 billion in fundraising last year.
To say we’re in a tough place financially is, well, a gross understatement. We are in dire need of funds.
Luckily, I have some excellent news….”
The Nyoni Youth and Community Project is offered a large donation from the Anders Corporation that promises to save the struggling charity. The source of the money is, however, an ethically questionable one and, as the details of the Anders Corporation’s dirty and damaging deeds come to light, the Nyoni Board – and the audience – are faced with an agonising decision: do we accept the money or do we reject it?
Secrets will be spilled, hidden and traded, loyalties and rivalries will be formed and broken as the charity’s board wrestles through the muck of this ethical dilemma and discussions soon spiral from professional to personal.
The audience plays the role of members of the charity: you will CHOOSE which breakout rooms to go into at different points in the play – and therefore what secret agendas and stories you overhear; in the end, you will VOTE on whether to accept the money and there are SEVERAL POSSIBLE ENDINGS depending on the result.
Commissioned from an idea by represent., money. is a unique interactive production that puts you right at the heart of the ethical dilemma:
Will you accept the money?
