graduate students in Drama wrote this new play inspired by the scenario for a "lost" script conceived in 1937 by associates of the Federal Theatre Project. The new play moves from Brazil to New York, with scenes of wealth and bankruptcy, accompanied by cabaret, chicanery and financial chaos. "Money" incorporates film clips, Depression era news headlines, music, circus and more as production elements to explore ideas about capitalism, supply and demand, and the burning question of happiness. The cast of characters includes such infamous and historic figures as Stalin and Hitler, Huey Long and Franklin Roosevelt, along with a 17th-century Elizabethan and a W.C. Fields-like banker.
