For richer, for poorer

This play explores how we can both under- and over-eat and what this does for our health. Set in India it looks at two groups of people, rich and poor, and how both have poor diets for very different reasons. Although it refers to food in India it could be adapted to link to other countries across the world.

Great for use in an assembly or in class, when learning about healthy eating.  It contains roles for everyone in a class, music and sound effects and guidance for performance.

Written in collaboration with research scientists as part of The Crunch, created by the Wellcome Trust. It is designed to promote learning and discussions about our food, our health and our planet.
