When an American waitress enters into a devil's bargain with an overzealous customer, she begins to see the dark side of restaurant tipping culture.
Welcome to What The Money Meant. How much does your money buy? At the door, a hostess welcomes three VIPs into the show’s inner circle. These VIPs are encouraged to tip throughout the evening, and a larger audience eavesdrops as a parable on capitalism and desire unfolds.
A Brechtian musical for three and a spectacle for more, What The Money Meant asks if the person with the dollar really has the power in the first place.
If you would like VIP access, the venue requests that you please bring plenty of change with you to the show on the evening (£2). VIP access includes direct interaction with the performer. Please ask for a VIP ticket when booking.
