Menagerie Theatre: The Great Austerity Debate

Friday 2nd November
7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Menagerie Theatre Company presents The Great Austerity Debate by Patrick Morris

The Great Austerity Debate is an interactive forum theatre play. Follow the story of Megan K. as she juggles low-paid work, ever-deeper debt, two kids and that fancy new red handbag. Welcome to a world where the phrase, “We are all in this together” rings hollow. Welcome to a world where austerity is the new normal. But there is a way out. After watching the performance, you are invited to imagine different outcomes for the characters, and see your ideas played out by the actors. You can give your views or simply sit and enjoy the play being re-told on the spot. Every audience brings new responses, new interventions and new endings, making each performance unique.
