Love and Money
By Dennis Kelly
Michaelmas Week 6
'You see, he could see that I couldn't afford the car. Do you understand? It was visible on me.'
David and Jess have debts. Big debts. Debts that are crushing them. They think they're willing to do whatever it takes to pay them off - but how far will they really have to go?
Love and Money explores how our modern relationship with money affects our relationships with each other through the story of young married couple, David and Jess. As their debts spiral, they will turn to unconventional ways of earning money that they'd never even imagined. A dark examination of what lies behind the picture-perfect consumerist life, this play questions whether it is ever possible to connect to others when money will constantly get in the way.
