Plenty is a play by David Hare, first performed in 1978, about British post-war disillusion. Susan Traherne, a former secret agent, is a woman conflicted by the contrast between her past, exciting triumphs—she had worked behind enemy lines as a Special Operations Executive courier in Nazi-occupied France during World War II—and the mundane nature of her present life, as the increasingly depressed wife of a diplomat whose career she has destroyed. Viewing society as morally bankrupt, Susan has become self-absorbed, bored, and destructive — the slow deterioration in her mental health mirrors the crises in the ruling class of post-war Britain.
Susan Traherne's story is told in a non-linear chronology, alternating between her wartime and post-wartime lives, illustrating how youthful dreams rarely are realised and how a person's personal life can affect the outside world.
The PLENTY (Piedmont Local Economy Tender) is a local currency used and accepted in Pittsboro, North Carolina by a growing number of businesses for goods and services. The currency is managed by the PLENTY Currency Cooperative Corporation and is backed by Capital Bank Financial with United States dollars, 10 Plentys may be purchased for $10.00 US. PLENTYs can be traded for goods or services or exchanged for United States Dollars at businesses that accept them.
PLENTY are offered in 50, 20, 10, 5 and 1 denomination bills and feature the phrase "In Each Other We Trust". The logo and currency were designed by artist Emma Skurnick and feature illustrations of native plants and animals. Bills are printed locally on bamboo based paper and include anti-counterfeiting features.
Like other local currencies, the PLENTY is legal as they don't too closely resemble United States currency. Transactions conducted with Plenties are taxed just as transactions in United States Dollars.
