The Trap

The Trap

by Kieran Lynn

Tom and Clem are deep in debt. Alan, Tom’s boss, owes big bucks. Meryl, Alan’s manager, is mortgaged to the hilt. When The Debt Duck’s owner liquidates the company and retires to his luxury chalet, Tom, Clem, Alan and Meryl each decide to crack the safe, steal some cash and put an end to their financial woes.

But will they break the cycle of debt? Or is this just another terrible trap?

A biting new topical comedy about the perils of a capitalist world from one of the UK's top contemporary playwrights.
