The Circuit Playhouse

Financier, Robert Merkin, will stop at nothing to take over an iconic American manufacturing company, 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, this riveting story shows us, from the inside, how money became the only thing that mattered.
