Other People's Money
by Jerry Sterner
“Funny, serious, suspenseful and, above all, expertly crafted…. with both epic grandeur and intimate titillation.” N.Y. Magazine
“It held me, amused me, charmed me.” N.Y. Post
Other People’s Money won an Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Play and was adapted into the Hollywood film of the same name starring Danny DeVito.
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.
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.
The play is hailed by The New York Times as having ‘a heart of iron which beats about the cannibalistic nature of big business’ so brace yourself for a moral combover!
