About The Ultimatum Game

Two people are shut in a room for an hour with a million pounds. If they can agree within one on how to split it, they get to keep the money. If they can’t agree, they get nothing. When Jon Gracey wrote two-hander The Ultimatum Game last year, he certainly didn’t intend for its debut to take place via a live streaming platform. But creativity thrives in confined spaces, and as luck would have it, the two actors (Chazz Redhead and Chloe Mashiter) who did the first table read are now in isolation together – and happen to au fait with the ins and outs of streaming platforms and tech. And the director who had started to help develop the show (Charlotte Peters – Warhorse, An Inspector Calls) posted on social media that she was in need of a project to get her through quarantine. The Ultimatum Game is a high-tension dramedy exploring the consequences of two very different personality types trapped in a room together. Rather like what many people are experiencing at the moment, but with a million pounds at stake.
