Melbourne Festival comes to Parliament House.
No script. No characters. No actors, but all drama. In this ingenious game and piece of immersive theatre, the premise is simple; there is cash on the table, a participating audience must decide how to spend it. The decision must be unanimous, and it must be made on the night. Those are the rules.
The playful premise of this renowned work sets the stage for one of the most memorable conversations you’ll ever have, as altruism butts heads with personal interests, personalities clash and hierarchies are upended.
The results may be as taut as a thriller or as ludicrous as a farce, but beneath it all you’ll be asking: are there really any values we can agree upon? Is a common ground the most uncommon thing of all? And ultimately, can anything good really arise from the root of all evil?
