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.

NATURE OF DEBT Financial

So sorry that I couldn't save you Hannah. If I could I would have. So sorry Rachel that you have paid for this all your life. I would have saved you too if I could. My 2 1/2 year old daughter was burned to death in an accident at a buddhist monastrery 31 years ago. Her 5 year old sister had to look on alone. She has lived a life full of the repercussions of that loss.

many years ago pre 1929 my grandchild with type 1 diabetes would have died as so little was known about replacing insulin- all diabetes sufferers will never be able to thank these pioneers enough. On behalf of them all- thank you

Martin, Martin, where are you? I'm here mum, I'm in the front room. Where? The front room, in the front. Where? I’m here mum. I'm in here. Oh you've got back then have you? I haven't been anywhere. I've had another attack I've been up the whole night. Calling for you. I couldn't move, I couldn't breath. I nearly died. I needed you. And you've been drinking and and… and drugging with your whores. Mum it's half past three in the afternoon. You've just had a sleep. I've been here the whole time. I was crying out for you. Gregory wouldn't have done this. He wouldn't have abandoned me. I don't want you. I want Gregory. (Shouts) Gregory, Gregory! He's still in Canada mum. You'd have to shout louder than that. (Really shouts) Gregory! Gregory! No, no, I just meant he's not… Gregory He's not here. He's not coming. The kettle's already boiled. Let me make you a cup of tea, come on sit down. You want me out of the way. You want my money. You... You haven't got any money. It's just a cup of tea. Come on mum. The snooker’s on, you like that.  You settle down. I'll get your things and bring you a cup of cha. Is Steve Davis playing? No, he hasn't played for years. What have you done to him? What have you done to my Steve? What? No, no I've not done anything to him. Just sit down I won't be a mo.  - There you go. Nice cuppa tea. Feeling better? I'll sit and watch the snooker for a bit. Okay. I don't mean to shout. Sometimes I just... I just ... I don't know why you stay here with me. Yes you do Mum. You do.

OWED TO RBS, mortgage company, mother
OWED BY Fritha

I have never been an organised or wealthy person and am in somewhat of a vicious cycle of feeling panicy about paperwork but needing to sort it out. I tend to just throw myself into work which sorts out the debt as I freelance. I need to overcome phobias and be responsible and calm about it. My grandmother used to give me huge sums of money at an early age which I used to spend immediately and hide from my parents as they would take it away from me. I have always felt out of control about money. I was never taught to manage it and have always veered between being wealthy and poor. I have a plan.
