I’m trying so hard to reign in my spending after Christmas as we approach two exciting council tax free months, so the one-two punch I’m suffering today might take a while to get over. First popular Bother’s Bar approved beat combo The Pet Shop Boys have a new album coming out in April and they’re doing a gig at the Royal Opera House which I got a ticket for, and this evening an advert on Facebook – on Facebook of all places! – that piqued my interest is a show called The Money, a cross between a theatrical performance and a game. Basically if you want to play you put a stake forward and if everybody who puts a stake forward can unanimously agree what happens with it then that thing will happen, if not it will rollover to the next performance (it’s low-stakes Unan1mous in theatre form, basically). Anybody been already? I’ve got a ticket as a silent witness.
Contemporary theatre are two words that fill me with a sort of dread but if you’re local to Cambridge and this interests you then it’s going to play out at The Guildhall in Market Square on 16th Feb, minimum donation is a tenner if you want to play, you can sit as a silent witness for £12. Tickets through the Cambridge Junction website.
