Notorious for their original and boundary-defying projects, Bootleg Theater teams up with Small American Productions to launch Eric Rudnick's new play Day Trader. The stellar cast will include Brighid Fleming (direct from her critically acclaimed run in Wait Until Dark at the Geffen Playhouse with Alison Pill, and The Nether - Kirk Douglas Theatre) and Tim Meinelschmidt (Tony Award nomination - Coastal Disturbances).
A comedy writer in a career freefall becomes convinced that he deserves more, and sets out to write his own Hollywood ending. Truth proves stranger than fiction as he implicates his family, his best friend, and a bewitching young woman to get what he thinks he's got coming. Seduction, suspicion, and suspense become intertwined in a twisted tale of comic noir that leaves no one unscathed.
