Giving

by Hannah Patterson | 12 May 2016
There seem to be a lot of people out there with a lot of money who don't quite know what to do with it Laura has been commissioned to write an exclusive profile of businesswoman extraordinaire Mary Greene, who has recently become a leading philanthropist. But as Laura digs deeper into Mary's charitable motivations, she discovers a much more interesting angle. Michael, Mary's "Charitable Giving Advisor", seems to have an inordinate amount of influence over her decisions. Is it right that he wields so much power when his motives and priorities might not stand up to scrutiny? Or does the rationale for - and the morality of - philanthropic giving matter less than the outcome? It's always better to give than to receive. Isn't it? Hannah Patterson's absorbing play asks whether giving to charity can ever truly be altruistic and who actually gains the most - the recipient, the donor or the broker? It received a reading at the Arcola's PlayWROUGHT Festival in 2016 and was premiered at Hampstead Downstairs on 12 May 2016, directed by Bijan Sheibani.
