Opposing the rapacious financier are the genial man who has run the company since the year one and his chief operations officer, who bring in a young attorney who specializes in fending off takeovers, she’s smart…too smart. Join us for this award-winning comedy.
“Funny, serious suspenseful, involving, disturbing, and above all, expertly crafted. It concerns the intended hostile takeover of a deserving but obsolescent Rhode Island family business, New England Wine and Cable, honorably and not unprofitably run, that provides jobs for an entire small town’s population. Epic grandeur and intimate titillation combined. It is the most stimulating kind of entertainment.” – NY Magazine
