About The Austerity Playbook

The Austerity Playbook – a new musical

How did the austerity cuts of 2012 affect Newcastle? What was the role of the city council? And how does the lived experience of its citizens resonate with the broader political landscape?

Based upon ground breaking research by Professors Laurence Ferry and Ileana Steccolini, this unique collaboration between jazz composer Andrea Vicari, writer Mark O’Thomas and director André Pink presents the making of a new piece of musical theatre in a workshop performance that will push the boundaries of how the arts can work with, alongside and as a fundamental component of research.

With the kind support of the Economic and Social Research Council, Newcastle University and Durham University
