A young entrepreneur sets out on a quest for wealth with priceless ambition and a purse of gold.
This fable of free-market economics and cut-throat capitalism premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in March 2013, directed by Dominic Cooke, in his final production as Artistic Director of the theatre.
'What a play... rich, turbulent and satirical'
'A romping, sprawling barnstormer'
'A roguish mix of Henry Fielding and Bertolt Brecht... laudably ambitious in scope and playful in style'
'A punchy piece about the excesses of capitalism... plenty of stinging lines'
