A rapacious banker, corrupt, corrupting, you thought he would steal my soul.

Spain, 2013. Against all odds, young graduate Sofia has got a job as PA to one of the wealthiest bankers in the country. Sofia’s mother questions whether she gave more than just a good interview to get it…

In these times of financial chaos, the bankers are getting filthy rich whilst others are left unable to support their families. A storm is brewing, people are desperate – just what will they be driven to? Suicide? Murder?

“Intriguing.. plausibly and skilfully delivered... but somehow, for all its dramatic verve, it doesn't get beyond third gear. ”

What's on Stage (Other reviewers)

“Struggles to unite the private and public realms and is far stronger on relationships than the realities of commerce. ”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Initial ambiguity isn’t further explored; instead, we get a series of improbable squabbles... The performances are good. ”

Holly Williams (What's On Stage, Time Out, Independent)

“Begins intriguingly but becomes increasingly less credible... The dialogue is often maddeningly inexact. ”

Chris Bennion (The Times, The Stage, Telegraph)
