“★★★★★ The Physically present cash electrifies the room and makes the experience hot, love, dangerous... Moving through poetry-writing to tap-dancing to kissing, we eventually find ourselves watching two volunteers strip naked and pretend to f*ck for five minutes” - THE STAGE

An intriguing reflection on the relationship between audience and performer, the power of money to encourage uncharacteristic behaviour, the importance of maintaining moral integrity in face of social pressure and the potential of art to enthuse even mundane activity with poetic meaning.” - THE LIST

P-Project was featured by the UK newspaper “The Stage” as one of the best theatre shows presented in the UK in 2018.
