Can you have your bread & eat it?
breadwinner, orange tree theatre

Sometimes when you think of the state of the economy, all you can do is laugh or cry. Those who have shares in the stock exchange probably want to cry, but when there is nothing you can do about it, isn't it better to laugh? It can be hard, I know, so if you need a bit of a prompt, The Breadwinner should be your play of choice. Written by Somerset Maugham in 1930, the play is a comedy about Charles Battle; while all his peers are playing tennis, living off their parents, and experiencing the high life, Charles is facing trouble with the stock exchange. In danger of going bankrupt, Battle wonders what effects this would have on his family.

The play is being performed at The Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond between the 17th April - 18th March. Evening performances are at 7.45pm, while matinees are at 2.30pm, many of which have a post-show discussion. Tickets are £14.50 for adults and £12.50 for children,
