'Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.' Credit has crunched, debt has turned toxic, the gears of the world economy have ground to a halt. Yet despite its failures, the same market-driven ideas are being applied to everything from famine to climate change. We need to ask again one of the most fundamental questions a society ever addresses: why do things cost what they do? Radical, original, nimbly argued, The Value of Nothing draws on ideas from history, philosophy, psychology and agriculture to show how we can build an economically and environmentally sound future.

An interactive comedy play about the value of art in society. Entrepreneur Vince Fine and his small team are launching Artworks, a new initiative to help get unemployed people engaged in making Art. Unfortunately for Vince, the launch is dogged by infighting among his team, surprise guests and the fact that his girlfriend is pregnant and upset... What else could possibly go wrong? Exploring issues of how society views those living on welfare benefits, the ‘creative industries’ and what we should value in life, this dark comedy (running in real time) charts the fall from grace of the central comedic hero, Vince Fine, as he watches everything he’s ever dreamed of slip from his fingers. Includes some audience participation and interaction. About the playwright Kim is a writer and also a lecturer and Programme Leader for Creative Writing at Edge Hill University. Her plays include Joy With Child (2010) for Organised Chaos, The Loser (2009) at Camden People’s theatre as well as a range of plays for young people for Activ8 at Bolton Octagon, Lime Arts and Health, Lets Go Global and Mothers Against Violence, and Burnley Youth Theatre – including Polarised in 2003, the first play about the Burnley riots in 2001 and the first play she had ever written! In 2013 she was part of a North West co-operative of playwrights called the Alligator Club, creating pop-up theatre, and she co-wrote and curated Blackout at The Dukes in Lancaster and Pages From My Songbook at The Royal Exchange in Manchester. In 2014 she toured the first Laid Bare show, Project XXX, which she co-wrote with Paul Hine. In 2015 she was part of the Royal Exchange’s Next Stages group and was commissioned to write one of the monologues for the first Come Closer event, which was called Triple the Price of a Fruit Cake. She lives with her husband and two sons in Manchester. About previous work Comedy values aside, this is a fresh and timely piece of exploratory theatre. Project XXX maintains that it did not intend to provide any answers but simply to ask the questions. −Sarah Bloomer, What’s On Stage ...This, of course, is all in keeping with the theme, and breathes life into the Lantern theatre space like no production I’ve seen there before. The multimedia element gave a dimension to the drama that really gave Project XXX a boost. −Vicky Andersen, Made Up in Liverpool Project XXX is a disturbing look at an issue that’s becoming ever more relevant. With youngsters as young as 13 filming and distributing explicit imagery of themselves, Project XXX is trying to gain an understanding of why. −Martin Charlton, The Edge Chorlton

As clinical as it sounds to express the value of human lives, health, or the environment in cold dollars and cents, cost-benefit analysis requires it. More disturbingly, this approach is being embraced by a growing number of politicians and conservative pundits as the most reasonable way to make many policy decisions regarding public health and the environment.By systematically refuting the economic algorithms and illogical assumptions that cost-benefit analysts flaunt as fact, Priceless tells a ''gripping story about how solid science has been shoved to the backburner by bean counters with ideological blinders'' (In These Times). Ackerman and Heinzerling argue that decisions about health and safety should be made ''to reflect not economists' numbers, but democratic values, chosen on moral grounds. This is a vividly written book, punctuated by striking analogies, a good deal of outrage, and a nice dose of humor'' (Cass Sunstein, The New Republic). Essential reading for anyone concerned with the future of human health and environmental protection, Priceless ''shines a bright light on obstacles that stand in the way of good government decisions'' (Public Citizen News).

As retirement funds shrink, savings disappear and houses are foreclosed on, now is a good time to ask a question for which every human civilization has had an answer: why do things cost what they do? The Value of Nothing tracks down the reasons through history, philosophy, neuroscience and sociology, showing why prices are always at odds with the true value of the things that matter most to us. Damien Hirst’s diamond-encrusted skull sold for a record $100 million at auction. But if we account for the possibility that blood diamonds were used (as many suspect), the human cost is even greater. A Big Mac might seem like the best deal in these economic times, but after analyzing the energy to produce each burger, from field to Happy Meal, Patel argues the real price tag is a whopping $200. But it is easiest to see the gap between price and value by looking at things that are so-called free. Examining everything from Google to TV, from love to thoughts, The Value of Nothing reveals the hidden social consequences of our global culture of “freedom.”

A car crash: was it an accident? Or was it murder? And if it was murder, who was the intended victim? The first story featuring investigative reporter Jack Richardson. Jack is enjoying an evening with his girlfriend, Lucy Ryder. They run out of wine: Jack is over the limit, so Lucy goes out to the local store. She borrows his coat and car. Lucy never returns: within minutes, Jack's car is rolling down an embankment before exploding. Jack's instincts tell him this was no accident. Believing there is something in Lucy's life that is connected to the crash, he opens her laptop. What he finds leads him to believe could be behind her death. But it was a dark night, raining heavily, and visibility was poor. Lucy was driving Jack's car. Is there something in Jack's past that was connected to the crash, and was it a tragic case of mistaken identity? Previously published as Don't Go Out in the Dark.

"Do you want to know the great tragedy of my life? I have put all of myenius into my life; all I've put into my work is my talent.";"We live in ange that knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.";Oscar Wildes considered to be the greatest wit in the English language; this book markshe centenary of his death in penury and exile in Paris. Barry Day charts -n Wilde's own inimitable style - his progress from the brilliant, youthfulesthete who mesmerized his audiences, to the drunken debaucher, destroyed byis own vanity and arrogance.;The book combines not only Wilde's famouspigrams ("Work is the curse of the drinking classes"), but also the wordsorn from his heart, from his letters and diaries. It is a tribute to a manho is today perhaps even more famous and admired than he was in his ownifetime.
