THE PRICE OF EVERYTHING
Written and performed by Daniel Bye
How much is beauty worth? What will people pay for an air guitar on eBay? Can I have a glass of milk? These urgent questions and others are answered in The Price of Everything, a performance lecture about value. Daniel Bye's whistlestop tour of bizarre facts and impassioned arguments is occasionally shambolic and often misleading - but always a joy to watch. Comic, provocative, and possibly a tiny bit sad, this show is a must if you've ever wondered about the difference between the price of an object and its value. And you get a free glass of milk. Written and performed by Daniel Bye Directed by Richard Bonham Designed by Emma Tompkins ”The future of British theatre” - The Times
”A thought-provoking hour of storytelling and stand-up around the idea of value. Is this show worth the ticket price? A resounding yes. ” - The Independent ”Bye is such a funny, charismatic performer that it is hard not to get caught up in his utopian vision of a society based on kindness. ” - The List ”Whilst appearing to be doing little more than chatting amiably, Bye smartly and subtly plays with our ideas about value and its relation to ideology, and also about theatre. ”- Financial Times ****
