Show me the Money


David has just turned forty. He’s determined to start making big money, find the girl of his dreams and get married. Jenny is …. less than forty. She’s determined never to do any work at all if she can possibly help it, marry a millionaire and spend all the money. Will they get what they want, and if they do, will it turn out to be what they expect? Come and find out in this “city” comedy about the corrosive power of money.” 

It’s not just the next in a long line of “love of money” comedies that could be argued to have started more than two thousand years ago with Plautus’ “Pot of Gold”. Money has become so ingrained in the way we think about everything today that it’s impossible not to love it, or at the very least to keep focussing on its implication
