This new dark comedy delves into the world of those who mold and mess with the American economy. Rick, a private equity firm CEO, creates a PR nightmare when he throws himself an extravagant engagement party after forcing massive layoffs. Seth, one of Rick’s managing directors, tries to rectify the situation by pursuing a luggage company ready to be taken to the next level. But Jenny, Seth’s counterpart at the firm, suggests a countermove that relies on leveling it. The game is on in Sarah Burgess’ razor-sharp play about the price of success and the real cost of getting the deal done.
