The Value of Nothing


Peter Street,

Welcome to the Press Conference from hell.

The Value of Nothing will aim to tour during autumn 2017. The play explores the issues of worklessness, who and what we value in 21st Century society and how we view those on benefits. It is uses multimedia elements, music and a lot of audience interaction!
