    Abundance was commissioned by the Working Theater and created by Marty Pottenger through three years of interviews with multi-millionaires and minimum wage workers across the United States. At the heart of Abundance was a year-long New York-based civic dialogue group including participants ranging from undocumented workers to the very wealthy. Abundance makes possible an exchange historically marked by silence and shame on both ends of the economic spectrum. The play which is performed by 5 actors, explores America's attitudes towards wealth asking "How much do we have?" and "What is enough." Abundance takes the nation's economic temperature by exploring the taboo world of household budgets, bank accounts and credit cards. Abundance was developed in the same way as Pottenger's OBIE-Award winning City Water Tunnel #3, which focused on a 64 mile long water tunnel as deep as the Chrysler Building is high, which will eventually carry water to nine million New Yorkers. Integrating original writing and movement with selected texts from over 250 interviews with construction workers, government officials, scientists, engineers, bankers and other New Yorkers. The resulting performance, as well as a video installation and photography exhibit, has since been viewed by tens of thousands of citizens, across the U.S. and abroad.
