Contribute to the Book of Debts

Is there something you owe, or are owed, that you would like to draw a line under? A sum of money, an action left undone or a word left unsaid? Or something owed to or by a third party, individual or institution?

You can enter your debt and its story - into the Book of Debts here, now. All contributions are anonymous and you can add as many debts as you like.

The Book of Debts will then be recited and burned, one volume per location, as part of the final performance in each city, in a symbolic act of absolution.

To follow what happens to the Books and their remains, enter your email address when asked and we will invite you to the tour finale in 2015.

This is the week, twelve years on, when my daughter finished paying her student loan- and that was before the era of course fees. My grandson is now about to go up to Uni with, potentially, £40,000 of fees by the time he graduates, at a time when the government - through outsourcing, de-professionalising, digitising, mis-use of the minimum (now seen as standard) wage, misuse of European migration to force down wage costs, are making sure that very few of his generation will ever earn enough to start paying it off! Recent news on this front confirms the whole shambles this has become.

My Grandad, you were moved into a house 18 months ago before you died because Grandma passed away + you needed help with your Alzheimers. Because it was too hard, I never visited you at the house. Sorry you forgot about me. How about another game of cards? Love Laurie
