A romantically content but financially unsound couple are faced with an extraordinary offer.
In 1988 Atlantic City, a wealthy stranger offers to pay a million dollars to spend the night with Rebecca, leaving Jonny out of the picture for the night. Is this the answer to their money troubles, or is the trouble just beginning? This musical adaptation retains the original setting but seeks to shine a light on contemporary social and political mores. Inspired by Jack Engelhard's novel, which was also adapted into a successful film. Directed by Charlotte Westenra.
Annie asks Larry for advice as someone who is older, broke and unemployed, and his response is to tell her not to be any of those things. This ridiculous platitude rather encapsulates the hollowness of this piece as a whole.
