Broke - at Stahl Theatre


The Paper Birds presents
Co-commissioned by and developed at West Yorkshire Playhouse and Greenwich Theatre

Sally is British and broke. If Britain owes over £2,200 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?

This revival of 2014’s critically acclaimed verbatim production shares real life stories from the front line of poverty and debt in the UK. ‘Broke’ is a heartfelt and urgent look at the debt of a Nation from displaced families and gambling addictions, to beans on toast and blind leaps of faith onto the property ladder.

Based on interviews taken across the UK, multi award winners The Paper Birds explore what it means to be broke, from ‘feeling the pinch’ to finding yourself penniless, in this visually stunning production incorporating projection, movement and real life accounts.


Age suitability: 12+
