Hunger for Trade
4 plays and audio/sensory installations for the audience to travel through for the Royal Exchange
Directed by Polly Thomas and Alex Summers
Designed by Fly Davis
Overseen by the Schauspielhaus in Hamburg, HUNGER FOR TRADE is an international and inter-cultural performing arts response to the global food crisis, created in collaboration between nine theatres across four continents. And the Royal Exchange Theatre is the UK’s representative.
The Royal Exchange worked with multi-award-winning and internationally renowned playwright Simon Stephens who collaborated with four of the most exciting emerging playwrights from the UK – Miriam Battye, Brad Birch, Alistair McDowall and Kellie Smith – to explore the commodification of our food.
