Produced by Hatch Theatre Company in association with Project Arts Centre, April 17 – May 9 2009.

 

David conducts an office romance by e-mail. He has love at his fingertips. But a shocking admission unravels his relationship piece by chilling piece.

Jess loves David. She believes happiness can be bought.

David loves Jess. He must work to pay off her debt.

Love and money is killing them.

Dennis Kelly’s Love and Money offers a cautionary tale of consumerism gone mad, putting spiralling debt and its effect on love under the microscope. Funny but heart wrenching, this ingenious drama dares us to enter a dislocated world of bad debts and even worse desires.
