Caroline Horton & Co and China Plate present:
FOR THE LITTLE PEOPLE
A new performance by Caroline Horton and a panel discussion about tax justice featuring John Christensen of The Tax Justice Network.
In January this year, Caroline premiered the highly controversial ‘Islands’ at the Bush Theatre – a visceral, hard-hitting piece of theatre about the dark world of international finance. For The Little People is a brand new one-woman piece inspired by that show.
In Haven, you don’t ask questions, you remember the rules, you don’t scratch.
But Evie-pie disobeyed – our little rebel ate the Havenly fruit, the fruit of all knowledge – so the gods hurled her back down to Shitworld. There, among the multitudes, she kept on scratching – kept blowing her whistle. Now, she’s ready to settle the score and Haven’s finally going to pay…
A furious, funny, filthy solo piece about tax avoidance and the few who have it all, from Olivier Award-nominee Caroline Horton (‘You’re Not Like The Other Girls Chrissy’, ‘Mess’, ‘Penelope Retold’, ‘Islands’).
After the show there will be a short break followed by the discussion.
Supported by the Bush Theatre and Warwick Arts Centre and created in consultation with the Tax Justice Network.
