‘Bring the Bucket’ – a new dark comedy by BeFrank

‘Bring the Bucket’ – a new dark comedy by BeFrank Theatre Company at Richmix, Shoreditch

Chuggers (street fundraisers) armed with buckets are as common a feature of London’s streets as black cabs and red buses. These platoons of enthusiastic youths strategically deployed on London’s busy streets are another obstacle to overcome as you go about your daily business. Each attempt to prick your conscience and help you become a better person – the sick, the poor, the homeless, the environment – it doesn’t stop.
But who are the people shaking the buckets?
How committed to the cause are they?
And what happens to all of that cash?

“Bring the Bucket” takes a comic look at what takes place between two chuggers as they change shifts and comment on London’s citizens as they rush by, each determined to avoid digging deep into their pockets or bank accounts. It’s an entertaining, lightly provocative dark comedy that reflects on a part of the moral decline in today’s western society.

“Bring the Bucket is a witty and current portrayal of life for newly graduated young people in London.”
