Millionaires Anonymous (Comedy)

Synopsis

“Wonderfully funny… a master class of epic proportions.” 9/10 – Liverpool Sound and Vision

Winning the lottery is what everyone dreams of, but for these lucky winners, their dreams turned into nightmares. Turns out losing a fortune is much easier than winning one!

Fortunately, help is at hand. At Millionaires Anonymous people are encouraged to discuss their stories and problems, and with the help of a twelve-step program, the former millionaires are guided onto a path of enlightenment and self-fulfilment, learning along the way that money doesn’t buy happiness. Or does it?

Having formed a secret syndicate, the group continue to gamble what little money they have left, pinning all their hopes on winning the jackpot again. The odds on that? Two-hundred and eighty-three billion to one. It’s a long shot, but it could happen, and if it did you’d better hope your syndicate is a group of mentally stable and well-rounded individuals… but more importantly, that you can find the bloody ticket!

Millionaires Anonymous takes a hilarious look at our quest for happiness in all the wrong places.
