After throwing himself a lavish engagement party in the same week that his private equity firm forced job cuts at a national retailer, Rick is facing a PR disaster complete with angry protesters and scathing editorials. Luckily one of his Managing Directors, Seth, has the ideal fix: a cheap buyout of an American manufacturer that will grow jobs and save face. But Jenny, another of the firm’s partners, favors a cutthroat strategy that will maximize profit at any cost. Dry Powder is a razor-sharp and whip-smart comedy that skewers the world of high finance.
