Here's the script to the winner of Best Off-Broadway Play of 1989 as voted by the Outer Critics Circle. Funny, serious, suspenseful, involving, disturbing, and above all, expertly crafted...It concerns the intended hostile takeover of a deserving but obsolescent Rhode Island family business, New England Wire and Cable, horably and t unprofitably run, that provides jobs for an entire small town's population...Epic grandeur and intimate titillation combined. It is the most stimulating kind of entertainment. - John Simon, New York magazine. Hardcover.
