Written by Kim Wiltshire, a lecturer at Edge Hill University, it is a thought-provoking new play which explores the salient social issues of unemployment, the benefits systems and what it really means to be poor in the UK.
The Value Of Nothing is the story of a man who knew the price of everything, but the value of nothing.
Ex-community artist and self-proclaimed people’s champion Vince Fine (Ethan Holmes) is launching his back-towork initiative, ArtWorks. Vowing to end poverty, benefits, worklessness and even mental health issues, Vince and loyal sidekick Michelle (Jess Cummings) take on allcomers to persuade them ArtWorks works.
