    Made in China. Sold in Britain. Worn by you. From the factory floor to the catwalk, from Shanghai to London, World Factory weaves together the untold stories of people connected by the global textile industry. This published edition adapts the highly successful, provocative and participative theatre production for the page, offering readers the opportunity to play - as individuals or in teams - the managers of a clothing factory in China and recreate the experience of the game. Like a 'Choose Your Own Adventure' novel, the game has multiple routes and outcomes, interlinking questions of ethics, fashion, consumer capitalism, environmental impact, working conditions, migration and globalisation. In a cross between Monopoly and poker, players trade in workers and money, but it is a game about values - will you be an ethical factory owner or will profits always come first? In the rag trade, can anyone ever really win? World Factory was created and produced in 2015 by the performing arts company METIS, in co-production with the New Wolsey Theatre, Young Vic, and Company of Angels. It was performed at the Young Vic, London, and on tour of the UK.
