Bankers on Active Community Service or BACS is a participatory street theatre show devised and performed by The Delegates. It satirically reimagines a world in which the profligate bankers publicly apologise, and personally repent for the financial scandals they instigated, and profited from. Thus repaying, via a rhetorical BACS transaction, their debt to society.
