When fiction writers wanted a villain, they used to turn to rakes, bandits, pirates, and highwaymen. But these days, we prefer bankers and fat cats as our go-to baddies. Few have satirized them as gleefully and acutely as the playwright Caryl Churchill. Her 1987 play Serious Money, about a sister’s search for her missing sibling, skewers the champagne-soaked excesses of London’s financial sector, with pauses for song and dance breaks. PTP/NYC first revived this merciless “city comedy” last summer. It’s no less relevant a year later, so they've brought it back. Staged in the subterranean reaches of Atlantic Stage 2, it alternates in repertory with Howard Barker’s Crusades-set epic, The Castle.
Mondays-Sundays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: July 9. Continues through Aug. 3, 2013
