About the Play
After a series of brutal layoffs at Sutton, Feingold and McGrath, a precocious young consultant is brought in to save a middle-aged adman’s job, and maybe his life. This hilarious and keenly observed world premiere takes an intimate look at how money and work shape the human heart – and what we owe to others when everything around us is falling apart.

“There is no denying the beauty of [Schreck’s] prose.”
