Daniel Bye’s The Price of Everything 

10-12 July 2014, Manila

Part stand-up and part storytelling, and—as he reminds—definitely not a proper play, writer, director, and performer Daniel Bye will be coming to the Philippines to perform his solo show The Price of Everything, and to give his guess about one of the most subtle but important question of our times: why do we have to measure absolutely everything in money?

With equal parts of charm and wit, the occasional spark of charisma and glasses of glasses of milk, Bye will tickle you with bizarre facts and impassioned arguments in this performance lecture / stand-up storytelling show about worth. Comic, provocative, and possibly a tiny bit sad, The Price of Everything is a must if you've ever wondered about the difference between the price of an object and its value. 

And oh, there will be free milk. 

Catch the show at the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) from 10-11 July and at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) on 12 July. 

Scouted from the Edinburgh Festival 2013, the performance is brought to you by the British Council, the PETA, and the CCP.
