As a group of friends decide to organise the party of the century, the social network closes in. In a funny, thought-provoking take on how... technology aids and sometimes complicates socialising, Fringe sell-out company Poot Productions has created a new piece that asks the question: is social media the end of communication as we know it... or a brave new world of possibility (and parties)?

Doors: 7:30pm

Show: 8:00pm

UWE Drama Society Presents:

Love and Money by Dennis Kelly

H.P. Lovecraft's Call of Cthulhu

“...some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.”


After the mysterious death of an elderly professor one woman travels to Brown University in Providence. But what she will learn will be more dark and terrifying than she could have ever imagined. For one night only we bring to you a stage adaptation of the first chapter of H.P. Lovecraft's most famous work The Call of Cthulhu.

What would you do for love? What would you do for money? In our world of pay day loans and credit on tap how easy is it to become overwhelmed?


Jess’ craving for more than she can afford is slowly destroying her marriage, yet consumed by consumerism this is a woman who will not stop spending. A dark, honest yet comic look at the way we live, Love and Money asks the question: in a world where more is constantly thrust upon us, will we settle for true love instead?
