"A breathless, exhilarating crash course in the low morality of high finance" (Independent) Serious Money is perhaps Caryl Churchill's most notorious play. A satirical study of the effects of the Big Bang, it premiered at the Royal Court in 1987 and transferred to the West End. Since then, it has prompted city financiers the world over to applaud and decry its presentation of their lives. British Telecom refused to provide telephones for the Wyndham's production, writing to say that "This is a production with which no public company would wish to be associated".

Love to reread this play.
Story of people working in stock trading, working with serious money - and the contact with money and greed peels any culture and civilisation our of their selves. So that these characters recover to plain and bright and extreme passions and aggression and deeds like those of Barocco characters, like they are of same flesh and energy that Shakespeare's Macbeth or Richard III are made of.
And it's full of bold and sharp comism - tastes like Shakespeare, again.
A great play!

One must realize that in this play, Churchill is reviving verse drama into the 20th century. At first, I found this to be a most difficult read (in content and style). Yet everything that is difficult is not automatically to be considered bad. The subject matter of the book is largely concerned with the English stock market (and therefore largely uses its subsequent terminology). Churchill has EXTENSIVELY researched her subject matter, she deftly wields her words. Yet, do not be fooled. The play is not solely about the English stock market...or the death of Jake for that matter. Churchill is concerned with larger matters: that of commercial globalism, of the distance between generations, of traditions, of language and isolationism. Watch for WHEN words ryhme. Watch for WHEN characters are speaking alone. Watch for WHEN they are speaking together, in choruses. Everything is symbolic. Everything is incredibly, meticulously crafted. This might be hard to recognize at first (especially in the first run through), yet as long as you pay attention to Churchill's markings (ie: when characters are interupting one another/speaking at the same time) it is easy to recognize the genius and artistry of this modern work.
