The Stick in the Swill Bucket focuses on the implications of Advertising on society by focusing on the journey of Benjamin Baxter as he works as a copywriter for the advertising firm Falcon. The play focuses on the techniques and devices used by advertising agencies to sell products and how they can be misleading and highly influential, by showing them as a direct influence on Ben’s downfall and the corruption of society as a whole at the end of the play. The play intends to make its audience re-evaluate its views of Advertising and become more vigilant to the adverts they are exposed to in their everyday lives
