It’s the inequality, stupid.
Price Tag is a 40 minute powerhouse of a show for teenage audiences.
Price Tag takes a satirical swipe at the corporate world of fast food and touches on themes of health, exercise, protest, democracy and the people’s right to green spaces.
Theatre for young audiences that packs a real punch.
Commissioned by The Movement to launch Movement Hubs in Derby City secondary schools promoting 4 action programmes: Live It, Move It, Eat It, Kick It.
