'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.
