A darkly funny and delicious play about primal ambition gone awry in the cutthroat world of high finance. Ever wondered what antics all those young employees in the background of Succession get up to? Or what would happen if a private school princess and her gay best friend got hired at one of the Big Four? Perhaps you just love to hate the banking world (even though you don’t really know how it works)? Well, this is the show for you!
Pure Risk follows Gen Z investment bankers, Luke and Mia, who will stop at nothing to get ahead in their cutthroat world! After a video is leaked of their co-worker doing a racist Chinese accent, their bank is thrown into a PR disaster. For Luke and Mia, however, this is an opportunity to get the power and status they strive for, no matter all the lies and cover ups demanded of them. They're all in! But someone knows something…something that is sure to destroy them if it ever comes out. How far will Luke and Mia go to keep their scheme from falling apart? And what cost?
In just over 1hr, get ready for Pure Risk to take you on a rollercoaster through backstabbing, cancel culture, and all the financial jargon you can't really understand but sort of get!
