The Spoils - 2015 - Off-Broadway


Nobody likes Ben. Ben doesn't even like Ben. He's been kicked out of grad school, lives off his parents' money, and bullies everyone in his life, including his roommate Kalyan, an earnest Nepalese immigrant. When Ben discovers that his grade school crush is marrying a straight-laced banker, he sets out to destroy their relationship and win her back. The New Group presents The Spoils, a deeply personal and probing comedy written by Jesse Eisenberg as the third show in the company's 2014-2015 Season. Directed by Scott Elliott, this production features Erin Darke as Sarah, Jesse Eisenberg as Ben, Kunal Nayyar as Kalyan, Annapurna Sriram as Reshma and Michael Zegen as Ted.

The playwright/actor's hyper-charged character drama is intriguing and well-acted.
