This is an excellent night out. Great acting to an amazingly well-written and thought-provoking play. This is SF theater at its best, and performed by a low-budget ensemble with a high-budget outcome. See it or you'll be so sorry.

This a was good show. The acting was good, as were the actor's character choices. Enjoyed the staging and some simultaneous dialogue staging. Though, I did not feel the script was dynamic at all. Felt that you really had to know the environment...continued

Description

No Nude Men Productions and director Tore Ingersoll-Thorp present the world premiere of Bennett Fisher‘s new play about four derivative traders seeking to benefit from the Greek financial meltdown. Their acts of greed and deceit bring unforeseeable consequences and an unexpected visitor — Hermes, god of commerce and thieves, the physical manifestation of fraud, who goads the group into bolder action through slippery logic, tantalizing visions of immense wealth and the occasional punch in the balls.

Inspired in part by Lehman Brothers’ role in the current Greek economic collapse, Hermes paints an impishly comic and glorifying portrait of equivocation, exploitation, disinformation, misappropriation, deregulation, ruination, large corporations, financial machinations, and the age of globalization, exploring man’s godlike ability to profit off what is truly worthless.

Starring Juliana Egley, Geoffrey Nolan, Carl Lucania, Brian Markley, Lauren Spencer and Brian Trybom.
