This gripping new dark comedy delves into the world of those who have the power to manipulate the American economy. Rick, a private equity firm president, creates a PR nightmare when he throws himself an extravagant engagement party after forcing massive layoffs at his company.

Seth, one of Rick’s managing directors, desperately attempts to rectify the situation by pursuing a luggage company ready to be taken to the next level. But Jenny, Seth’s ice-cold colleague at the firm, suggests a countermove that spells disaster for the “little guy.” Sarah Burgess’ engrossing play opens a window into the high-stakes world of high finance. It’s play or be played.
