Other People's Money
Award-winning play by Jerry Sterner coming to the Jurkowitz Theatre April 10-25
Wall Street takeover artist Lawrence Garfinkle’s computer is careening over the undervalued stock of New England Wire & Cable. If the stockholders back his take over, they will make a bundle but what will happen to the 1200 employees and the community when he liquidates the assets? Opposing the rapacious financier are the genial man who has run the company since the year one and his chief operations officer. They bring in a young lawyer who specializes in fending off takeovers. Should she use green mail? Find a white knight? Employ a shark repellent? This compelling drama explores whether corporate raiders are creatures from the Black Lagoon of capitalism or realists.
"Funny, serious, suspenseful, involving, disturbing and, above all, expertly crafted..." N.Y. Magazine
