CASHLESS

Huge comedy delight and very entertaining. Two millennial shop staff, are fully trained to be only able to accept payment by bank issued card, and to repeatedly blame the customer. The clever and resourceful customer insists on his legal right to pay for his purchase in cash, because the store refuses to accept his Australian Currency. What about my change.


This play humorously explored the generation gap and the angst against millennial meltdowns. Cast did a great job in being believable in this easy-to-follow story.

Kelly McRae plays the annoying, uninterested Cashier treating customers like an inconvenience with such accuracy it’s painful. She really comes to life as the play develops with entertaining play between her and Graham Egan as the customer who just wants to spend some cash, his exasperation contrasts with her indifference in this clash between millennials and the cave man era. Emily Perry as the supervisor depicts the ‘I’ll call security’ society, for imagined and exaggerated infractions with cringy acuity. The customers hapless persona is helped by his shabby clothes, a tidy fun look at the miracles of modern technology, and their costs.
