Payday Party

Payday Party

Thu 11 - Sat 13 August 2022

Food prices up. Fuel prices up. Water bills up. National Insurance up.

In a cost of living crisis, what do you do to survive? Eat, heat? Or throw a Payday Party!! Five artists share their real-life stories and talents in the hope of getting paid by you, the audience.

Payday Party is the most glamorous legal political party you will go to. Song, dance, rap, spoken word and live music are thrown into the cauldron of despair to cook up a survival cake Marie Antoinette would be proud of.

Common Wealth make site-specific theatre events that encompass electronic sound, new writing, visual design and verbatim. Our work is political and contemporary – based in the present day – the here and now. We make work that is relevant and addresses concerns of our times.
