Have you ever looked at a £5 note and wondered “Haven’t I seen you somewhere before?”
FIVER follows the story of a humble £5 note as it passes through the hands and pockets of different people in London. Often unnoticed and obviously unaware, the fiver is present for significant moments in each person’s life – from an appreciation of their skills as a street performer, the start or end of relationships to the simple realisation that they can afford a bed for the night.
A workshop of FIVER ran at Crazy Coqs in 2017. Ellison and Lees said: “Since Crazy Coqs we have expanded the show, both in terms of length and complexity. FIVER now runs 40 minutes longer and we are massively excited to see the changes we have made come to life on stage.”
FIVER, by Alex James Ellison and Tom Lees, will gets its world premiere at Southwark Playhouse from Wednesday 3 July to Saturday 20 July, 2019.
