Inside the bank like no other

Arts and economics are two subjects that do not normally combine, but a new interactive theatre production in London aims to do just that - teaching children the importance of saving just as much as spending.

In Bank On It the young audience is taken on a journey into the depths of a bank like no other, where the value of money, the world's resources and our own assets are examined.

The show was co-commissioned by the Barbican, Theatre-Rites and Create London, in association with Warwick Arts Centre and the Department of Economics of the University of Warwick.

Director Sue Buckmaster spoke to the BBC to explain more about the production and why she chose to put banking in the spotlight.

Produced by the BBC's Serene Khalifeh and Tom Beal
