Are you ready to grab life by the assets? The 30th-anniversary revival of Other People’s Money, Jerry Sterner’s award-winning Off-Broadway comedy about a very hostile takeover, has taken over Southwark Playhouse. We’ve rounded up our favourite review highlights. Time to get booking!
“I love money. I love money more than the things it can buy. There’s only one thing I love more than money. You know what that is? Other people’s money.”
The Wire and Cable Company of New England is a sleepy, family-run business – that is until Larry-the-Liquidator threatens to bring a little corporate pillage to the village. CEO Jory has a different approach. Will his small-town ideas stack up against booming Wall Street?
Written in 1989 and premiered in New York, Other People’s Money took Wall Street by storm and won an Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Play. In 1991, it was adapted into a Hollywood film starring Danny DeVito as Larry.
At Southwark Playhouse, Katharine Farmer directs Michael Brandon as Jorgy, Lin Blakely as Bea, Amy Burke as Kate, Rob Locke as Larry and Mark Rose as Coles.
Other People’s Money runs from 17 April to 11 May 2019 at Southwark Playhouse, 77-85 Newington Causeway, London SE1 6BD, with performances Mondays to Saturdays at 8pm, matinees Tuesdays and Saturdays at 3.30pm. Tickets are priced £14-£22. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
