Coffs home to 'deadly dollars'

COFFS Harbour will soon play host to a special play performed by indigenous Australians aimed at educating people on how to stay out of debt.

Deadly Dollars is the brainchild of the Office of Fair Trading, and Minister Virginia Judge said this is the first time theatre has been used for Aboriginal community education.

“It is a new and innovative approach to educating communities about managing money and staying out of debt,” Ms Judge said.

The play covers issues such as household spending, interest-free deals, mobile phone bills and credit, with the central characters in the play faced with potentially disastrous financial situations.

“Performers interact with the audience, working out solutions to financial dilemmas that are then acted out, and the audience learns who and where to turn to when faced with financial problems,” Ms Judge said.

Deadly Dollars will be staged at Coffs Harbour on December 3 at the Norm Jordan function room at the showground, entry is free.
