The Deal Versus the People
Bradford City Hall
21st-24th October 2015
A co-production with the West Yorkshire Playhouse
A play about power, how much we have, how much we want, how much we’ve given away, how much has been taken away. What can we do now? Sign a petition, write a letter, plant a bomb?
How powerful are we alone, how powerful are we together? What can we achieve tonight?
‘The Deal Versus the People’ explores TTIP – a trade deal that will give corporations more power over governments. Common Wealth have worked with people from Bradford who are not normally represented in politics to create a site-specific event, transforming Bradford’s City Hall Council Chambers before touring to the European Parliament in Brussels where all the big decisions are made.
