Croupier needs to buy a caravan for her and her ex-gambling-addict grandad, but she’s skint.

She works Casino Zero, where pit boss Janet hounds her to eat Chum Bars for energy. Bizarre, poetic humour runs through this tale of loss, punctuated with melodic, loop-station soundscapes, crafted live with casino props.

This is a tale of minimum wage, grief and addiction. Inspired by two years of night shifts working as a croupier in a casino just around the corner from Nottingham Playhouse, this play highlights the social issues of gambling culture, caricaturing the industry through the eyes of a female, working-class writer from Nottingham.

Content Advisory Information: please note Casino Zero covers themes including addiction, animal harm, cannibalism, child loss, death, family loss, poverty, self-harm, sex work and suicide.
