Beds in sheds. ‘Poor doors’. Revenge evictions. Soaring prices and social cleansing. Non-doms, mega-mansions – and benefit caps. London 2016. Why oh why / Would you wanna be anywhere else?
CPT invites bidders to a first viewing of This Is Private Property. Newly on the market, this absurdist panorama of London’s housing crisis occupies a sought-after spot in the Whose London Is It Anyway? festival. This highly desirable show combines drama finished to a high standard, generous documentary and stunning verbatim testimony with exposed brickwork. Open-plan comedy, within easy walking distance of tragedy. Off-street parking included. Superb transport links. No social housing.
This is Private Property combines absurdism and documentary, verbatim text and live music, splicing one woman’s journey through the depths of London’s housing crisis with the true(ish) story of the artists’ quest to interview the developer of London’s newest, biggest residential home.
“Please don’t make me sound like a prat for not knowing how many houses I’ve got” – David Cameron, 2009
