Perhaps Rich, the corporate scum bag in Irrational Exuberance, isn’t half as bad as – or as smart as – Madoff, but that doesn’t stop him from ruining the lives of the people who worked for him and invested in the dubious “Air Futures” division of his now defunct company. In his attempt to escape the looming media frenzy, Rich enlists the help of his assistant, Nolan, to keep his wife, Patricia, in the dark. But Patricia knows something is amuck and heads for their cabin in the sticks where Rich typically hides out. At a gas station convenience store along the way she encounters Debbie, for whom she baby-sat as a teen and figures out that Debbie had worked for her husband. Patricia heads to the airport to meet Nolan just moments before Rich shows up at the gas station. Debbie recognizes Rich at once and he soon discovers that she is in possession of the missing Dossier which proves he duped his investors and she plans to testify against him before the grand jury. It’s small town Main Street fighting back. But, does Debbie have the guts to see it through when Rich sends Nolan to “take care of it”? $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
