Dry Powder by Sarah Burgess
October 14 – Nov 20, 2021
“A vicious if coolly rendered comedy about ruthlessness and greed in the world of high finance . . . a writer with a gift for razor-sharp dialogue.” – Vogue
“[A] lacerating dark comedy . . . Dry Powder feels extraordinarily timely. It’s a play every oligarch should see.” – Time Out New York
The same week his private equity firm forced massive layoffs at a national grocery chain, Rick Hannel threw himself an extravagant engagement party, setting off a publicity nightmare. Fortunately, Seth, one of Rick’s partners, has a dream of a deal to invest in an American-made luggage company for a song that will rescue his boss from the PR disaster. But Jenny, Rick’s other partner, has an entirely different plan: to maximize returns, no matter the consequences. The game is on in this gripping, razor-sharp play about the price of success and the real cost of getting the deal done.
