Play: Dry Powder
Synopsis: 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 acquire 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.
Cast Breakdown: Main: 1 Woman 3 Men
Set/Costume Requirements: Minimal set requirements. Costuming would be some form of business-wear for each character.
