Chugger by Dale J. Pearson
Northern Stage, 25th-27th February 2013
Have you got a minute? Just a minute? To chat? Just to chat about the work we’re doing? If you could stop poverty, would you stop it? What about famine? Or drought? Would you put an end to it? Well how about the aged? Or the tigers? Or the whales? Would you save the whales? I bet you’d save the whales if you could. So…£3 a month, shall we say? £3 a month?
Welcome to the world of charity mugging. Guilt is currency. Compassion is for hire. And targets are everything.
Dark, satirical and hilarious, Chugger is a gripping new play about the people who pull heartstrings for a living.
