Wealth of Nations (2009)

…it looks like a decadent night of bands and performers, rather than a discussion place for economic theories… Mark Hawthorn, Trading Room, The age

Enter the carnival of democracy.

Ride the roller-coaster of free trade.

And prepare for an evening of exuberant exchange.

In 2009 Sanctum Theatre and Fenestra Productions celebrated the 233rd anniversary of Adam Smith’s seminal work, Wealth of Nations.

The ship may be sinking, the invisible hand may have lost its grip on the invisible wheel, but there is an alternative!

Audience members exchanged their Australian dollars for peanuts in order to trade it in the Wealth of Nations marketplace.
