The global gap between rich and poor grows. As the world is decaying, the spawn of the powerful dance like everyone is watching. From the company behind the award-winning The Believers Are But Brothers, this is a darkly comedic, urgent new play about entitlement, consumption and digital technology, exploring cycles of historic decline and rebirth and the ways societies try to reproduce themselves. Winner of the 2019 Scotsman Fringe First Award and written by artist, writer, and activist Javaad Alipoor, RICH KIDS asks audiences to use Instagram to explore what’s happening in the world around in interactive, innovative new way.
