EuroCrash! The Musical
EuroCrash! The Musical - a co-operation with the BCCG. For registration please see below. Nothing is more topical than the euro these days and the heroic attempts to save it. In such troublesome times we all need some light relief: EuroCrash! The Musical is about to come to a theatre near you. It gives a new meaning to the drama of the single currency. And it should prove thoroughly entertaining, with wicked verses and great, original songs. EuroCrash! made its debut in Barnes, West London , in September 2011, and will run there for three days in January. Then, by kind invitation, the musical is coming to Berlin and Frankfurt, before continuing for a short spell at the Cockpit Theatre in London .

Meet Papa Kohl and Madame Mitterrand, the charming couple who hold it all together; meet the Snake, a clanky prototype; Jean-Claude Trichet, the last great eurocrat; the PIIGS, paying for past profligacy; the dark eminence of the mighty Bundesbank; and the wild, exotic currencies of central Europe . All this gives us something between Gilbert & Sullivan and Berthold Brecht, with hard-hitting lyrics and great songs - all original. A thoroughly entertaining show of not much more than an hour, which will appeal to experts and laymen alike. No previous experience of the single currency is needed. It is thought-provoking, even educational. A must-see for anyone involved in or likely to be affected by the future of the euro.
