About this show

In Obie Award-winning playwright Deborah Margolin's recently controversial play, we witness intriguing imagined jail-time conversations between Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff and Solomon Galkin, a poet and philosopher. In high moral showdown, these two Jewish men banter about women, baseball, the Talmud, human decency, kindness, and the story of Abraham and Isaac. Through them, we learn how greed helped cause the Great Recession, marking the past half decade of American life. According to DC Theatre Scene, "we know the what already; in Imagining Madoff, we seek the why."
