Rich Kids: A History of Shopping Malls in Tehran

Winner of the 2019 Scotsman Fringe First Award, Rich Kids: A History of Shopping Malls in Tehran  co-created by Javaad Alipoor and Kirsty Housley (Theatre Royal Stratford East's Extinct), will be playing at Riverside Theatres from 22nd to 23rd January 2022. 

The global gap between rich and poor has never been greater. As the world decays, the spawn of the powerful dance like everyone is watching.  

Rich Kids: A History of Shopping Malls in Tehran is a darkly comedic, urgent new play about entitlement, consumption and digital technology, that explores the ubiquitous feeling that our societies are falling apart. 

Combining digital theatre and a live instagram feed, it is the sequel to the award winning The Belivers Are But Brothers, and the second part of a trilogy of plays from Javaad Alipoor about how digital technology, resentment and fracturing identities are changing the world.

Like champagne that’s lost its chill, life can lose its thrill.

Frilly, flimsy and flippant, focusing on frivolity,  the serious business of office politics,...

Suspense and surprise go south in North by Northwest, substituted with cheesy cheer east of Edam.

Naive theatre meets high tech in The Umbilical Brothers’ production, The Distraction.

The lights go down. The cicadas scream. The lights come up and we wait for the play to begin....
