Other Peopleís Money is a compelling tale of opposites. On the one hand, there is a small-town company trying to survive in a dying industry. On the other hand, there is a New York City corporate raider who specializes in identifying potential takeover candidates. In the play, 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 assets? Are corporate raiders creatures from the Black Lagoon of capitalism or realists? Other People's Money is a biting social commentary that is as timely as today's financial news.

"...But Mr. Estrinís biggest asset is his ensemble cast, headed by Edward Kuffert, one of Chicagoís most dynamically talented and versatile actors. Kuffertís work is never predictable or phoned in; his dramatic choices could never be called safe. As Lawrence Garfinkle, the egomaniacal weasel bent upon taking over every small, floundering company on the east coast for personal gain, Kuffert creates one of the strongest, most unique characters to tear up the Citadel stage. Heís well-matched by Denise Mahlerís confident, neophyte attorney, a bit over-caffeinated but hellbent on saving her motherís small company while taking down this pompous Goliath."
