Wall Street takeover artist Lawrence Garfinkle's computer is going
tilt over the under valued 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?
Although based in the world of modern finance, this story is more
and exploration of greed and desire. Not so much of the characters
but of you the members of the audience.
Don't miss the chance to enter the minds of those people who have
done so much for our country so recently.
Winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off Broadway Play.

contact sport with deep sexual undertones.
