MONEY the game show - performance footage and vox pops
MONEY the game show has now opened at the Bush and is thrilling critics and audiences who had been getting stuck into gambling with the £10,000 pound coins in the show. Have a sneak peek of the show to see what all the fuss is about.
MONEY the game show
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.
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?

Mudlarks by Vickie Donoghue at the Bush Theatre
Three teenage boys. A reckless act. Tragic consequences.
On the muddy banks of the River Thames, downstream from the bright lights of London, three boys hide from the police after a night of thrilling recklessness. Over the course of the night their lives will change forever. As the dynamics of their relationships shift, their fears, secrets and dreams emerge, revealing the desperate frustration of lives barely led but already ravaged.
Vickie Donoghue's powerful debut was a sell-out show at HighTide Festival and Theatre503. Her writing flashes with humour, but pulls no punches as she explores why some people dare to dream, and why others cannot.
18 Sept - 20 Oct

This summer Theatre Delicatessen is unearthing a new and wondrous world at the Bush Theatre; the world of Bush Bazaar, where market traders rub shoulders with fortune tellers, stock brokers and white-coated doctors in a fantastical environment where anything could happen.
We invite you to enter this world, inhabited by an eclectic array of performers who have taken over the space and are selling their wares. It is up to you whose performance gets your cash. As you roam the building you will decide what each piece is worth and pay your way however you want to - by haggling, bartering, begging or stealing.
Bush Bazaar is brought to you by Theatre Delicatessen in association with the Bush Theatre.
31 July to 18 August
Tickets £10 (£8 concessions)
