A dramatic comedy for 5 men and 3 women. This timely play by the acclaimed author of Cloud Nine, Top Girls, Fen, and Vinegar Tom was a hit in London, transferring from the Royal Court Theatre to the West End. Serious Money is a Jonsonian satire about capitalism running rampant and unchecked. All money corrupts and serious money corrupts absolutely in the play's world of shady financial deals, insider trading and get rich quick wheeler dealers of both sexes. Not only does the play capture almost every aspect of dirty dealing and money grubbing from London to Wall Street, but it does so in extremely ingenious rhymed couplets!
