Debt - By Ribcaged Productions

February 2015
It won’t happen to me. I’m not drowning in debt…
Debt is an exciting, fast paced physical theatre show based on real peoples’ accounts of the difficulties they have faced from falling into debt.
Touring – Spring 2015
Synopsis- Banks. Pay-day lenders. Loan Sharks. Who can you trust?
As a society we are now drowning in debt. Ribcaged tell this tale, using engaging physical theatre, based on the true accounts of real people and how they have been affected by debt and managed to change their lives. ‘Debt’ is energetic, explosive, funny and hard-hitting.

‘Debt’ is an innovative physical theatre production, funded by Lancashire County Council, designed to warn young people about the perils of financial mismanagement. The production is based on real life accounts of local people who have experienced debt.

We are touring this play to local schools in February 2015 and are aiming to reach over 5,000 secondary school pupils with this production. We also have public performances available. ‘Debt’ follows Ribcaged’s 2013 Dramatic Change project ‘Dealt’:
