In this fast and funny 50 minute theatre show, Stan's Cafe Theatre Events dramatizes the Birmingham City Council's £3bn annual spenditure and answers two questions on everyone's minds; where does it all come from and where does it all go?
The show ('All Our Money') follows Bordesley, a football mascot through his first day at work as leader of Birmingham City Council. Normally in charge of entertaining the fans at half time, he now has to make sure care homes can afford tea time.
