BITCOIN BOI

2022

Riverfont, Newport

Bitcoin Boi‘s punchy message challenges our thoughts of the times we are living in. - EntsSouthWales

A new play with songs, by Catherine Dyson
They say you can't put a price on a good life. They're wrong.
Times are hard and skies are grey, and it’s a daily battle to keep the wolves from the door. Jade and her mother Crystal dream of a better life - the life promised to them by Jade's father, before he vanished. While Jade relentlessly chases down a mythical fortune in a video game, Crystal is seduced by the offer of a mysterious stranger who has come to town. In the shadows, a Bounty Hunter waits. As the night unfolds, both must face a reckoning with loss and longing, and find their way back home.
Part modern fairy-tale, part sales pitch for a new crypto utopia, this Newport-grown story explores themes of grief, hope, and the true price of the dreams that we are sold.
The play features songs composed by Dyfan Jones with lyrics from Catherine Dyson, heavily inspired by 80s, early 90s style electro music.
