It’s election year for Margaret Thatcher and in the dog-eat-dog world of London's Stock Exchange, wunderkind Jake Todd is found shot in his apartment. While unravelling the mystery of who killed her brother, Scilla begins to see just how embedded Jake was in the dark underbelly of London's financial world. Since the Big Bang, sinister figures, have taken advantage of London’s newly deregulated market, prioritizing profit, greed and personal interests. Amidst the looming threat of investigation, boardroom drug deals, and billionaire backstabbing, Scilla must decide how much she’ll risk to find her brother’s killer and his missing millions.
Caryl Churchill’s noir comedy Serious Money is a fast-paced look at the consequences of unchecked greed and ego. Sexism, colonialism and capitalism are interrogated in this 2-hour caper.
