Serious Money

Written by Caryl Churchill
Directed by Emily Jenkins
Performed by our final year Foundation Professional Acting students in The Sainsbury Theatre

All money corrupts, and serious money corrupts absolutely. From London to Wall Street, the world of shady financial deals and insider trading is exposed in Churchill’s satire about capitalism running rampant and unchecked. Serious Money was a hit on its London premiere in 1987, transferring from the Royal Court Theatre to the West End. The play won the Olivier Award for Best new Play, the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and the Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy.

Caryl Churchill’s other plays include Light Shining in Buckinghamshire, Top Girls, The Skriker, Blue Heart, This is a Chair, Far Away, Drunk Enough To Say I Love You?, Love & Information, Here We Go and Escaped Alone. Churchill has also written for radio and television. In 2010 she was inducted into the American Theatre Hall of Fame.
