In Other People's Money, by Jerry Sterner, Wall Street takeover artist Lawrence Garfinkle's computer is going tilt over the undervalued stock of New England Wire & Cable. If the stockholders back his take over, they will make a bundle. But what will happen to the 1200 employees and the community when he liquidates the assets? Opposing the rapacious financier is the genial man who runs the company and his chief operations officer. To help fight off Garfinkle they bring in a young lawyer who specializes in fending off takeovers. Should she use green mail? Find a white knight? Employ shark repellent?
This compelling drama explores whether corporate raiders are creatures from the Black Lagoon of Capitalism or realists. Winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off Broadway Play.
