In a small Boston suburb, a single schoolteacher is struggling to get by when the wealthy father of one of her students surprises her with a financial proposal that could change her daughter's life. Suddenly, their worlds collide in ways that open up the question: what truly separates the haves and the have nots? Is it wrong to seize an incredible chance, even if the circumstances seem questionable? Loosely inspired by a passage from "The Great Gatsby," this timely new play by the author of The City of Conversation probes the troubling relationship of finance to educational opportunity in American life today. Directing is Tony winner Doug Hughes (The Father and Doubt at MTC).

The creative team includes John Lee Beatty (scenic design), Catherine Zuber (costume design), Jen Schriever (lighting design), Fitz Patton (original music and sound design), and Ben Furey (dialect coach).
