BROKE

The Paper Birds Theatre Company

Question: Sally is British and broke. If Britain owes over £900 billion in National debt and Sally has been on minimum wage for most of her working life with the interest on her debt being equal to her monthly outgoings, then who is more broke, Britain or Sally?

A heartfelt and urgent look at the debt of a nation from displaced families and gambling addictions to beans on toast.

Based on interviews taken across the UK in 2014, multi award winners The Paper Birds explore, with real life stories from the front line of poverty and debt, what it means to be broke in this visually stunning new production.

Suitable for ages 13+

"Broke is a passionate and thoughtful show ...exposing painful lies about poverty"**** The Scotsman
