Tonight, there’s a pub quiz and the winner gets a cash prize.
With just a table, chairs and glasses, four performers peel away the layers to uncover the real meaning of poverty.
There are currently 1.1 billion people living in poverty. This doesn’t just mean they are poor. There are other necessities they are lacking. This could be food, fuel, sanitation, healthcare, clean water, education, a means of employment or a roof over their heads.
Written by Gareth Cook, this short piece, performed both live and for film, is an original and stimulating look at multidimensional poverty.
POVERTY ON THE TABLE was commissioned by OPHI (Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative).
