Winner! 1987-1988 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize<
This timely play by the acclaimed author of Cloud Nine, Top Girls, Fen, and Vinegar Tom was a hit in London, transferring from the Royal Court Theatre to the West End. Serious Money is a Jonsonian satire about capitalism running rampant and unchecked. All money corrupts and serious money corrupts absolutely in the play's world of shady financial deals, insider trading and get rich quick wheeler dealers of both sexes. Not only does the play capture almost every aspect of dirty dealing and money grubbing from London to Wall Street, but it does so in extremely ingenious rhymed couplets!

"Pure genius." - London Daily Telegraph

"Vigorous, aggressive, funny and much needed." - London Observer

"A tendentious, up to the minute satire about corruption and insider dealing." -London Spectator

"A riotous black comedy, astonishingly topical." - Time Out
