‘Dry Powder’, February 21-24, Shaker Bridge Theatre, Enfield, NH
Dry Powder by Sarah Burgess
at Shaker Bridge Theatre
A viciously, deliciously funny new drama about the people shaping and skewing the American economy. The same week his private equity firm forced massive layoffs at a national grocery chain, Rick threw himself an extravagant engagement party, setting off a publicity nightmare. Fortunately, Seth, one of Rick’s partners, has a win-win deal to invest in an American-made luggage company for a song and rescue his boss from a PR disaster. But Jenny, Seth’s counterpart, has an entirely different plan: to squeeze every last penny out of the company, no matter the consequences. The game is on in this razor-sharp new play about the price of success and the real cost of getting the deal done.
Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 pm and Sunday afternoons at 2:30pm.
