Dukes measures 'The Price of Everything'



 How much is beauty worth and what will people pay for an air guitar on eBay?

These urgent questions and others are answered in The Price of Everything, Daniel Bye’s performance lecture about value coming to The Dukes on Thursday 13th October.

Comic, provocative, and possibly a tiny bit sad, this show is a must if you've ever wondered about the difference between the price of an object and its value.

And you get a free glass of milk.

Daniel Bye, who has been described as "part of the future of British theatre",  writes and directs immediate, playful, surprising theatre. 

"My work juggles with comedy and tragedy, roughness and polish, truth and astonishment," says Daniel. "I want you to laugh, cry, gasp and change the world."

His work has been described as "almost perfect" by the Scotsman; "near perfect" and "genius" by the Stage; "Fantastic" and "excellent" by the Herald; and "stylish", "terrific" and even "intelligent" by the Guardian.

His whistlestop tour of bizarre facts and impassioned arguments is occasionally shambolic and often opinionated – but is always a joy to watch.

The Price of Everything is part of The Dukes Pub Season to celebrate the theatre’s 40th anniversary. It can be enjoyed on its own or as part of a double bill with one-woman play Hi Vis on 13th October.

• Tickets for The Price of Everything are priced £10/£5 or £13 for a Hi Vis combined ticket.  To book, contact The Dukes box office on 01524 598500 or www.dukes-lancaster.org
