The Value of Nothing by Kim Wiltshire
Directed by Joyce Branagh
Welcome. Come on in. Take part in the project launch of ArtWorks, the new back to work initiative championed by your friend and ours, the fantastic Vince Fine!
And so begins the press conference.
More like an event than a play, this Laid Bare show invites the audience to interact, be active and take part. In the world of The Value of Nothing, we are at the press conference from hell, witnessing the case of Vince Fine, an ambitious man, who seems to know the price of everything, but the value of nothing. As his world crashes in around him, the audience witness whether or not he can make the right choice – whether or not, in the end, he does know what to value.
As Vince champions his government ‘back to work’ initiative ArtWorks, the audience is invited to get involved with the lives of the characters. Multimedia elements and music create the setting, punctuated with human stories from young people about their real-life experiences of living on benefits in the UK today.
“This is where the real, human, down and dirty art is made. By us.”
