Crash

My new play fuelled by rage at bankers’ bonuses:

‘It’s a reunion of sorts, but you’d never guess they ever had anything in common to see them now. Nick: Securities Trader for Goldman Sachs and collector of art. Humphrey: an artist with ethics and a cheque he’s not sure he should cash. Christine: the beautiful girl they both loved. All together again, in Nick’s Elizabethan mansion, getting ready to celebrate the unveiling of a new sculpture.

But under the surface Humphrey is angry. Angry in the same way that the whole world is angry, angry about how people like Nick seem to have got away with causing a financial meltdown that affected everyone, but still manage to bank their bonuses.’
