What’s it about?
Peter, a mathematician who is niceness itself, is in financial trouble because of his brother's bankruptcy. His neighbour Margaret decides to seek help from his friends who spend much of their time boasting about their wealth and prestige.
But while his friends happily take advantage of Peter's good nature in their own hour of need, how willing will they be to help him in his?
Set in the early 90’s, this play explores relationships, ambitions, wealth and ethics that remain relevant today.
