Australian Exclusive

You sit at a table. As a Benefactor, you’ve paid for the privilege. Others watch on as Silent Witnesses, but it is the Benefactors who will decide how to spend the money on the table.

The decision must be unanimous, it must be made tonight and it must be within the law. If these conditions aren’t met, the money rolls over to the next group of Benefactors. Silent Witnesses can buy in at any time and that could change everything. These are the rules.

The playful premise of this renowned work sets the stage for one of the most memorable conversations you’ll ever have, as altruism butts heads with personal interests, personalities clash and hierarchies are upended.

The results may be as taut as a thriller or as ludicrous as a farce, but beneath it all you’ll be asking: are there really any values we can agree upon? Is a common ground the most uncommon thing of all? And ultimately, can anything good really arise from the root of all evil?

Please note that performances of The Money may be streamed online.
