Rwanda, 1994. a young girl is stranded amongst bodies on a dusty road. She clutches her faded American doll. She steps in front of a car carrying a western diplomat and his family. They take pity on her. She sits in the back with a boy, she lends him her doll, sharing stories of its future. The car arrives at the border, but the guards refuse her crossing. The boy leaves with her doll. She stays. Sixteen years later. Nathan designs dolls of his own: action figurines into whom he pours his hopes, his dreams, his narrative of the perfect life, and by whom he has won fame and fortune. Today Grace returns. She wants her doll back. Wealth is a virtuosic performance event that crosses discipline and convention, a riveting and deeply provocative play about the collisions of culture, memory, story and hope on the precipice of history's end.
