Joe Sellman-Leava and Dylan Howells embark on a quest to uncover how the economy wins elections and why the force that dominates our lives is so bloody complicated!

Armed with boxes, bags and an old board game, Joe and Dylan calculate how their lives have been shaped by the economies they grew up in.

Developed with and directed by internationally acclaimed Katharina Reinthaller, and produced by Worklight Theatre, It's the Economy Stupid is a bold new show from the Fringe First winning creators of Labels and Fanboy.
