VIDEO: Inside Playhouse on the Square's JUNK

Playhouse on the Square presents the regional premier of Pulitzer Prize winning author, Ayad Akhtar's new work.

Financier, Robert Merkin, will stop at nothing to take over an iconic American manufacturing company. Including changing the rules as he goes. Set in the high-flying, risk-seeking, teetering financial world of the 1980s and inspired by the real junk bond kings of the day. Junk is the riveting story that shows us, from the inside, how money became the only thing that mattered.

Originally performed at the La Jolla Playhouse in 2016 and later on Broadway at the Vivian Beaumont Theater. Junk is Akhtar's fourth stage play and was nominated for Best Play at the 2018 Tony Awards. The Circuit Playhouse previously presented the regional premier of Ayad Akhtar's Disgraced in 2017.

Performances will run Thursday - Saturday 8:00 pm curtain and with 2:00 pm curtain on Sunday. For tickets, call the Box Office at (901) 726-4656 or visit our website www.playhouseonthesquare.org. Group rates are also available.
