Performance lecture offers value for money

HOW much is beauty worth and what will people pay for an air guitar on eBay?

These urgent questions and others are answered in The Price of Everything, Daniel Bye’s performance lecture about value coming to The Dukes on Thursday, October 13 at 8.30pm.

Comic, provocative, and possibly a tiny bit sad, this show is a must if you’ve ever wondered about the difference between the price of an object and its value.

And you get a free glass of milk.

Daniel Bye, who has been described as ‘part of the future of British theatre’, writes and directs immediate, playful, surprising theatre. His work juggles with comedy and tragedy, truth and astonishment.

His whistlestop tour of bizarre facts and impassioned arguments is occasionally shambolic and often opinionated – but is always a joy to watch.

The Price of Everything is part of The Dukes Pub Season to celebrate the theatre’s 40th anniversary.

It can be enjoyed on its own or as part of a double bill with one-woman play Hi Vis on October 13.
