An astounding money game with compelling consequences
The game: The Money.
The aim: To reach a unanimous decision about how to spend some money.
The rules: You have exactly one hour to work with others to reach a unanimous decision, otherwise the money rolls over to the next event, you have to stay within the law and you can’t give the money to charities. Welcome to The Money, Kaleider’s international hit showgame, in which 15 strangers address the question: What would you spend money on?
The Money is both a game and a compelling performance; often funny, sometimes malicious, and always revealing. Everyone is an accomplice, whether you choose the role of Silent Witness or Player. The game exposes human relationships whilst asking big questions about the nature of money, community, and democracy. With as bonus a guaranteed discussion reviewing it afterwards in the park. Value for money, if ever there was.
You can either be a Player (€10) and have a voice, or watch as a Silent Witness. But Silent Witnesses should bring an extra €10 in their pocket, so they can buy their way in at any time, become a Player, and change the direction of the show.
“The Money could be the greatest reality TV show that hasn’t happened yet”
