Description

Serious Money

By Caryl Churchill
Directed by Tom Gutteridge

Performed by the Graduating Third Year Actors Company, Fed Uni Arts Academy
As part of the SERIOUS COURAGE season at the Arts Academy.

Serious Money was written in 1987, just after the deregulation of the UK stockmarket and in the same year that Gordon Gekko famously told us that ‘greed is good’. Caryl Churchill’s rollicking take-down of the birth of casino capitalism is a cross between a rock musical, a murder mystery and a modern morality play. As we live through the aftershocks of the Global Financial Collapse, Churchill’s evocation of unbridled avarice and blood-thirsty competition is astonishingly relevant and current.

Written for equal numbers of men and women playing multiple roles in true ensemble style, Serious Money is the perfect play for the Arts Academy’s graduating actors to show their energy, commitment and skill.

The season is under the direction of Tom Gutteridge (Artistic Director of Union House Theatre, University of Melbourne, 2009-2014 and Artistic Director of Black Swan Theatre Company, Perth, 2004-2008).

Serious Money is part of the Arts Academy Serious Courage program, a season of political performance that is both a call to arms and a celebration of amazing performance from the Graduating Arts Academy Acting and Music Theatre Companies. Contemporary, passionate, radical, and epic: a celebration of Caryl Churchill, Stephen Sondheim and Bertolt Brecht.
