Other People's Money

Other People's Money

1 no. saves icon · Contemporary

The Wire and Cable Company of New England is a sleepy family-run business – that is until Larry-the-Liquidator threatens to bring a little corporate pillage to the village

Overview

With a jam-today approach to both doughnuts and investments, Larry is accustomed to grabbing life by the assets. But CEO Jorgy has a different approach. Will his small town ideas stack up against booming Wall Street? In this darkly funny 80’s play, it all comes down to whether ‘values’ have their price.

Since opening off-Broadway in 1989, Other People’s Money has won an Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Play and was adapted into the 1991 Hollywood film starring Danny DeVito.

See the play hailed by The New York Times as having ‘a heart of iron which beats about the cannibalistic nature of big business’ and described by current President of the United States of America Donald Trump as ‘an extraordinarily insightful, timely and witty play,’ and brace yourself for a moral combover!

Recommended for ages 12+

Critic reviews

The play serves as a fable against greed and it’s interesting how many of the themes are relevant and relatable to a 2019 audience
