Money Womb

Written by Nick Smith

Theatre503, Battersea  |  3rd - 8th August 2015

"This is a romance between a man and a city."

I’m a doer, I’m a roll up your sleeves and make a change person. People are usually reluctant to change, that’s why you leave them behind. Money and drugs are my tools, my bucket and spade. I’m digging myself a trench in London and bunkering down. An earwig latched onto London’s armpit.

Velvet Trumpet team up with producer Emily Hubert (I And The Village – Theatre503, Silk Road – Assembly Festival) and director Jonny Kelly (Papatango Theatre Company) to proudly present this acerbic debut play by man-in-crisis Nick Smith.

Velvet Trumpet once again prove they are masters of tragicomedy, and in Nick Smith they may well have found a geyser of potential talent. It’s exciting to think where he will take us next.

When you have a work that offers such smart observations as this know you have a rich new voice and a piece of theatre that has given you a certain degree of wonderful pleasure.

Full marks to Velvet Trumpet, a small theatre company with big ambitions, who aren’t afraid to be inventive and push against the squeeze on funding and challenge the social status quo that seems to have theatre by its vice-like, privileged grip.
