Join SPACE on Ryder Farm and alumni playwright Sarah Burgess for the Public's SOLD-OUT production of Dry Powder.

Written during Sarah's 2013 residency, Dry Powder is a viciously, deliciously, funny new drama about the people shaping, and skewing, the American economy. 

Featuring: John Krasinski, Claire Danes, Hank Azaria, Sanjit De Silva and directed by Thomas Kail (Hamilton, In the Heights).

Join playwright Sarah Burgess and VIPs for wine, beer, and light appetizers at The Library at The Public following the performance.

About Dry Powder: The same week his private equity firm forced massive layoffs at a national grocery chain, Rick (Hank Azaria) threw himself an extravagant engagement party, setting off a publicity nightmare. Fortunately, Seth (John Krasinski), one of Rick’s partners, has a win-win deal to invest in an American-made luggage company for a song and rescue his boss from a PR disaster. But Jenny (Claire Danes), Seth’s counterpart, has an entirely different plan: to squeeze every last penny out of the company, no matter the consequences. The game is on in Sarah Burgess’ gripping, razor-sharp new play about the price of success and the real cost of getting the deal done. Thomas Kail (Hamilton, In the Heights, Lombardi) directs.

About The Library at The Public: Located on the Mezzanine Level and named for the building's original use as the Astor Library, the Library is a central element of the mezzanine level of our landmark building's downtown home at Astor Place. Open late nightly for dinner and cocktail service, the hidden away supper club plays dinner bar, watering hole or backstage lounge to downtown denizens and neighborhood dwellers, theater-goers coming or going, academics and artists alike.
