In a Vulnerable Place - Steve Waters Festival of Debate
May 23 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

In a vulnerable place – Play written and performed by Steve Waters

Part of Festival of Debate Festival. Steve Waters’s first one-man show is a very personal journey into the present tense reality of climate change. Returning to Sheffield with a new play after acclaimed shows at The Crucible, it tells the story of encounters he has had with people in the Norfolk Broads (a landscape under a death penalty) and in Mongolia (a place experiencing the temperature rises scheduled for the rest of the world by 2050) as he discovers a world where there’s ‘so much left to fight for’.

money is weird - festival of debate

Money Is Weird (Festival of Debate)

When it comes to money, Laurence Peacock (BA English Lit, 2008) definitely knows what he’s talking about. OK, fine, he really doesn’t. But he’s tried his best to find out…

From the mind that brought you ironic tax advice (Dodge&Co, Festival of Debate 2017/18) comes a show about money and how profoundly weird it is. Join Laurence as he tries to answer the fundamental questions: What is money? Where does it come from? And will you give him £7 to talk about it for 50 minutes? No? What if he throws in some jokes and promises to keep the graphs to a minimum? Alright, fine! £6. Geez…

Audience Responses to Dodge & Co’s ‘Tax Dodger’s Guide to Fargate’:

“Garners laughter and despair in equal measure.”

“Very eye-opening.”

“Interesting… Surprisingly interesting, actually.”

Tickets: £6

This event is part of the 'Our Democracy' strand which has kindly been sponsored by Sheffield College.
