WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Bitingly relevant and radically entertaining, this lost American classic powerfully dramatizes the world's first global financial crisis, the New York Panic of 1857. The play follows the banker Gideon Bloodgood and the intertwining fates of the families he imperils, casting an uncompromising eye on characters in every strata of society, from Park Avenue privilege to Dickensian squalor. Mixing riotous humor, visceral emotion and political potency, this production reinvigorates the vibrant, but neglected, tradition of American melodrama. This is a New York story with global resonance that speaks to the most pressing concerns of our age.
