Love and Money

A Midwest Premiere
By Dennis Kelly, Directed by Robin Witt

A darkly funny morality tale about monster debt and fractured desires, the high price of living and the stuff we buy to fill up the void. Personal happiness is not just love, but Pottery Barn furnishings as well. Love and Money premiered in 2006 at the Royal Exchange in Manchester before moving to the Young Vic in London later that year.
