'Who Wants to Be...?' - the spontaneous, democratic game-show

'Who Wants to Be...?' - the spontaneous, democratic game-show
* 7th November 2008, 8-10pm *
* The Unicorn Theatre, London Bridge *

'Who Wants to Be...?' is a live reality game-show where the audience
make up the questions, have all the answers, and set their own rules.

200 people will buy £10 tickets making a £2000 cash pot, then spend 2
hours proposing, discussing, and creatively modifying each others ideas
for what to do together with a £2k budget. 'Who Wants to Be...?' is:

A radical experiment in audience participation http://tinyurl.com/wwtb0
A fun new way to support & fund local projects http://tinyurl.com/wwtb3
A tool for public visualisation and co-design http://tinyurl.com/wwtb1

Previously on 'Who Wants to Be...?' the audience very nearly voted to
sack the host and put their money behind the theatre bar. Suggestions
included group ownership of a dog, guerilla gardening in the City of
London, and a symbolic burning of the cash. Finally the audience decided
to buy a woodland! Each audience member is now a co-owner of a share in
a beautiful Welsh woodland to be looked after for future generations.

£2000 buys anything from a prefabricated log cabin to a signed Damien
Hirst print, 9642 packets of crisps, or rent on a London flat for a
month of parties. Gamble it, donate it, invest it, waste it! Bring your
ideas, your tenner and your vote to the Unicorn Theatre on Friday 7th of
November and decide.

'Who Wants to Be...?' is part of the London Games Fringe, a festival of
alternative gaming events at the end of October 2008, organised by
artists, academics, gamers, game developers, educators and creative
professionals from a wide range of different media:
