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'

- Guardian

'A romping, sprawling barnstormer'

- The Times

'A roguish mix of Henry Fielding and Bertolt Brecht... laudably ambitious in scope and playful in style'

- Financial Times

'A punchy piece about the excesses of capitalism... plenty of stinging lines'

- Evening Standard
