    Laura has been commissioned to write an exclusive profile of businesswoman extraordinaire Mary Greene, who has recently become a leading philanthropist. But as Laura digs deeper into Mary’s charitable motivations, she discovers a much more interesting angle. Michael, Mary’s “Charitable Giving Advisor”, seems to have an inordinate amount of influence over her decisions.

    Is it right that he wields so much power when his motives and priorities might not stand up to scrutiny? Or does the rationale for – and the morality of – philanthropic giving matter less than the outcome? It’s always better to give than to receive. Isn’t it?

    Giving opened at Hampstead Theatre Downstairs in May 2016.
