The City, London. When the actions of four bankers during a public protest provokes an incident, events quickly spiral out of control, a riot erupts and a protester is critically injured. Economy of Thought is a searing, thought-provoking, darkly comic tale of money, morality, loyalty and responsibility. The most divisive issue of our times becomes the most explosive play of the summer.

John Higgins has been associate director for Award winning director Katie Mitchell’s productions which include ‘Waves’ National and Cologne Theatres 2006, ‘The Trial of Ubu’ 2012 and ‘Small Hours’ 2011 Hampstead Theatre. He is currently also working for the European Tour of ‘The Damnation of Faust’ 2013 and at the 2014 Salzburg Festival.

Katharine Davenport has appeared in the Channel 4 TV series ‘Shameless’. Her stage roles include as Peasblossom in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and Viola in ‘Twelfth Night’.

In 2011 Patrick McFadden founded Odd Rituals to promote his own work, plus other writers, artists, musicians and music labels.
