Unit Set/Multiple Settings

In this heartfelt comedy, the privileged lives of two Upper East Side teens are irrevocably changed when their father is accused of insider trading. Two brothers look at the world with the hilarious observations of boys on the brink of adulthood.
"…delicately funny…[a] clear-eyed comedy about the collateral damage sustained by the family of a disgraced businessman…humanizes a world normally glimpsed only in tabloid flashes…[Weitz's] bottomless knowledge of this territory emerges in small details that illuminate both the surface absurdity and the underlying poignancy…Weitz understands how the culture of wealth can weaken the bonds between parents and children." —NY Times. "…the play succeeds wonderfully…a beautiful portrait of brothers helping each other cope with the adult world." —NY Post. "Weitz has a gift for capturing the parlance of youth…" —Variety.
