Three interwoven stories unlock the frustrations and passions of characters struggling with their bank balances, their addictions, their histories and their own sense of self in Benefit, which starts a three-night run at the Key Theatre on Wednesday (March 18).

A coup in a country half a century ago, a disability that leaves a woman speechless, and a sex addiction that’s destroying a relationship link three characters in a carefully crafted story about lives and loves and the social systems they have come to depend upon.

What is left to lose? What is left to gain? And when will equality and justice truly be served?

Cardboard Citizens has been making life-changing theatre with and for homeless people for 23 years.

This is not theatre as you know it- the audience can stop action in the second part of the event and rehearse alternative scenarios.
