Serious Money in Previews at Renowned Ontario Theatre in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada
Play written by Caryl Churchill, one of today’s most eminent and provocative playwrights, explores issues of modern life often in unconventional ways at the Shaw Festival
Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Serious Money, contemporary Shavian playwright Caryl Churchill's prescient look at corporate greed and financial excess, à la the 1980's, is currently in previews at renowned Ontario theatre The Shaw Festival. Eda Holmes directs this amazingly timely satirical ride through a world of financial empire building, where sacrificing kith and kin is the norm and making a profit is the only reason for existing.
