Fast food worker Shaun is your average eighteen year old boy. He likes music, video games and getting stoned. He’s also the sole carer to his eight year old sister, Sophie. But without enough money for child-care, and under pressure from an unsympathetic boss, he’s forced to make decisions that could have devastating consequences.
About Money is the debut play by Glasgow-based playwright Eliza Gearty. Drawn from interviews with young kinship carers and fast food workers, and inspired by Gearty’s own involvement with the McStrikes of 2018, this Glasgow-based drama is about family, love and friendship, in a world where the need for money threatens to destabilize all three.
