“I know the true price of money!”

Old Fashioned is an exciting new play by Felix Westcott which aims to examine and dissect the social structures that sustain the lives of the rich and unhappy.

When successful businessman Jim finds himself alone at the bar of a grand hotel, he never expects that the entire belief system his life is built upon could be ripped apart in a single night. Soon, a lyrical explosion of verse monologues and rap sequences fills the stage and asks a single, universal question: can money really buy you happiness?

With a stylistic combination of harsh realism and intense physical theatre, this is a truly gripping piece of new writing and the thrilling premier of Half Rhyme Productions.
