Show Description

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Disgraced Ayad Akhtar returns to Lincoln Center Theater with his new play, JUNK. 

Set in the high-flying, risk-seeking, teetering financial world of the 1980s and inspired by the real junk bond kings of the day, this riveting story shows us from the inside how money became the only thing that mattered. 

Financier Robert Merkin will stop at nothing to take over an iconic American manufacturing company, changing the rules as he goes. With his brilliance matched only by his swagger, Merkin sets in motion nothing less than a financial civil war, pitting magnates against workers, lawyers against journalists, and every one against themselves.

Steven Pasquale (The Bridges of Madison County and TV’s “Rescue Me”)leads an impeccable cast, directed by Tony winner Doug Hughes (Doubt)

Staged by Doug Hughes for Lincoln Center Theater, whose taste for quasidocumentary epics was also evinced in last season’s Oslo, Junk melds a breadth of genres—crime story, tragedy, issue play, cautionary tale—into a fast-moving, broad-ranging social thriller.

At first glance, Ayad Akhtar’s new 1980s financial markets drama looks like the kind of thing we’ve seen before. But what separates Akhtar’s play is how it so skillfully integrates the speed, size (with a large ensemble cast to portray leading figures of the financial community plus its cronies, observers and victims) and detailed plot mechanics of a high-stakes thriller with light comedy and space for the characters to consider how high finance both deviates from and reflects traditional American values, including the compulsion to win at any cost, even as the ultimate prize becomes increasingly elusive.

Steven Pasquale (“The Bridges of Madison County”) nimbly plays the Milken lookalike, Robert Merkin, with boyish eagerness that quickly coarsens into wild-eyed obsession.  But his enthusiasm for the dark arts is infectious, and soon all the other boys want to play this game, too. Their collective lust becomes so overwhelming, the whole industry smells like a locker room.
