Written by Ayad Akhtar
Directed by Geoff Packard

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar takes on the origin story of America’s financial crisis in this fast-paced thriller the Los Angeles Times called “Part Shakespearean history play, part ‘The Big Short.’”

It’s 1985, and prominent financier Robert Merkin is taking the world by storm with his willingness to take on higher-risk, higher-yield bonds—what he calls “junk bonds.” As he sets out to take over a massive steel conglomerate by using its own debts as an asset, Merkin sets off a financial civil war that threatens to change the world as we know it.
