Come and see the drama that inspired the 1991 movie starring Danny DeVito, Gregory Peck and Penelope Ann Miller!

Wall Street takeover artist Lawrence Garfinkle’s computer is going tilt over the undervalued stock of New England Wire & Cable! If the stockholders back his takeover, they will make a bundle but what will happen to the 1200 employees and the community when he liquidates the company's assets?  Opposing the rapacious financier are the genial man who has run the company since the year one and his chief operations officer. They bring in a young lawyer who specializes in fending off takeovers. Should she use greenmail?  Find a white knight?  Employ a shark repellent?  This compelling drama explores whether corporate raiders are creatures from the Black Lagoon of capitalism or realists.

Other People’s Money stars Charles Deitz Sr. of Tinton Falls, Vince Fay of Matawan, Jennifer Jones of Colonia, Matt Lafargue of Morristown,  Donne Petito of Hopewell.
