evermore theatre company presents the toronto premiere of

Dry Powder

Happening in the Greenwin Theatre

About The Play: 

The same week his private equity firm forced massive layoffs at a national grocery chain, Rick Hannel threw himself an extravagant engagement party, setting off a publicity nightmare. Fortunately, Seth, one of Rick’s partners, has a dream of a deal to invest in an American-made luggage company for a song that will rescue his boss from the PR disaster. But Jenny, Rick’s other partner, has an entirely different plan: to maximize returns, no matter the consequences. The game is on in this razor-sharp, satirical play about the price of success and the real cost of getting the deal done.
