England's master of satire is in top form in this comic morality play which was triumphantly presented by the National Theatre of Great Britain. Jack McCraken has the opportunity of a lifetime: he is the new head of a family furniture business and believes he will initiate a new age of honesty and integrity. He quickly learns that everyone else involved in the enterprise has a vested interest in maintaining business as usual, rife with dishonesty and deceit.
