Briton Ferry Little Theatre invites you come and watch their latest production, Other People’s
Money – a play that paints a colourful picture of the cut-throat world of business.
Other People’s Money centres on the intended hostile takeover of a Rhode Island family business in the 1980s. When New England Wire and Cable, a business that provides employment for a town full of people, is targeted by Larry the Liquidator, a corporate raider who wants to rip apart the company and sell it off, the peaceful lives of those involved are interrupted. Andrew Jorgenson, the President of the company, wants to keep his father’s business alive. Beatrice, his secretary, wants to help Jorgenson. And William Coles, the company president, wants to ensure his future position at the company. They call upon Kate, Beatrice’s daughter who is a lawyer on Wall Street, to help them defend themselves.
What follows is a game where both predator and prey pull out all the stops to get result they want. Both funny and serious, it’s “the best game in the world”.
Other People’s Money looks at the harsh reality of business, the importance of family and loyalty and the blurred line between wrong and right.
Entertaining from beginning to end, it has some of the funniest lines you will ever hear, lots of emotion and plenty of doughnuts.
It’s the ultimate seduction.
