Making a Killing

Synopsis:
Making A Killing, a new play by Ben Van Lier, is a vicious, satirical black-comedy which takes aim at a world of gluttonous governments, corrupt corporations and bandit bankers. Dave, Gary and Justin all work in high finance. Gordon Gekko ain't got nothing on them. They're ruthless, smart and place profit over everything... they're also great friends. They're out of town for a conference and their traditional game of high stakes, Monopoly... except its not quite Monopoly! Petey is Dave's new assistant. He's just about to the reach the end of his 90 day trial period and Dave needs to truly test Petey out before he decides whether to keep him on or let him go. Now Petey has to join the game and finds himself playing not only for thousands of dollars, but his career too. Win the game, he wins big. Lose the game, and he goes home empty handed and unemployed.
