February 21st Writers' Night at The Bush: Money the game show

Dear Agent 160 friends, below are some links and pictures for my play Money the game show, on at The Bush till the 9th March.

On the 21st February, so next Thursday, there's going to be a 'writers' night' with the actors Brian Ferguson, Lucy Ellinson and me, chaired by the amazing Selma Dimitrijevic, dramaturg at The Bush. We're going to talk about dramatising contemporary political issues and events. I might talk a bit about writing non-gendered roles as a feminist strategy, as the end of Money is scripted for the 'Loser' and 'Winner' rather than the female and male characters 'Queenie' and 'Casino'. I'll definitely be mentioning Agent 160. I think we'll also be talking about the role of actors/performers in the process of directing your own work. If any of that sounds of interest it would be great to see you there. Clare x

MONEY the game show - praise from the press:
''This playful, thoughtful and riotously entertaining piece is right on the money', 
The Guardian.
'Engagingly explores the build-up to, and the aftermath of, the 2008 financial catastrophe',
Financial Times
''Hilarious and tragic...the writing glitters',
The Scotsman.
'Think Deal or No Deal but 100 times more entertaining', A Younger Theatre
MONEY the game show, by Clare Duffy, is into its 3rd week at the Bush and delighting critics and audiences alike, who have been getting stuck into gambling with the £10,000 loot on our stage.
Due to demand, the show is extending until 9 March - giving you even more chances to catch it - but book quick as performances are filling up.
