Show Me the Money - Chelsea Theatre

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

MATTHEW Gould directs the world premiere of Show Me the Money, Tony Diggle’s new comedy, which runs at Chelsea Theatre from Tuesday, October 1 to Saturday, October 5, 2013.

David has just turned forty, and he’s determined to start making big money and find the girl of his dreams and get married. Jenny is… less than forty, and she’s determined never to do any work at all if she can help it, marry a millionaire and spend his money. Will they get what they want? And will it turn out to be what they expect?

Show Me the Money is described as a sparky new modern rom­com about how money distorts everything we do.

The cast are James Price, Lindsay Readman, Brendan Gregory, Andy Loudon, Ben Owora, Toby Osmond and the voice of Fiona McKinnon.
