Bank On It

co-commissioned by Theatre-Rites, the Barbican and CREATE, in association with Warwick Arts Centre and the Economics Department of the University of Warwick.

Bank On It was presesnted in Haggerston, London in June/July and then in Coventry in October/November 2013.  

A promenade, site-specific production for ages 5 plus and their accompanying adults.

Audiences were invited to explore the secrets of our very unusual bank.  Step inside and you'll discover that something's not quite right in this extraordinary world of money.  You'll meet some bemused bank customers on this interactive journey and, together, you'll search for the elusive Bank Manager.  Why doesn't he want to let you in to his Bank and what is he keeping so safe?

This exciting site-specific, promenade experience for children aged 5 plus and their accompanying adults is fun, beautiful and thought provoking; exploring resources that money can and cannot buy.  In a world where objects come to life and the unexpected is always happenng, you may unearth the things you value the most. 

"Theatre-Rites, a company of genuine originality and flair" The Guardian  

"rich in humour and humanity"  The Telegraph

"a delightful, stunningly visually inventive show.  Worth every penny".  Time Out

"engagingly performed by the cast, this is an astute, and often beautiful show" The Financial Times
