The Voysey Inheritance suggests that corruption remains a distressingly prevalent cultural legacy. The debased ethics within it could be drawn from any contemporary account of corporate impropriety. British playwright Harley Granville Barker, writing in the 1900s, follows the well-intended Edward Voysey as he is shocked to learn that his family’s financial firm has been swindling its clients for over 20 years. The revelation of these misdeeds instigates a series of reactions from Edward’s family and associates, most of whom have profited from the ongoing crimes and see no reason to stop now. They justify their infractions with an absurd slate of self-serving rhetoric. The piece was adapted by Michael Dufault for upstart theater company Mosaic Productions, which has attracted deserved attention for previous stagings of Almost, Maine and the 2017 Fringe Fest favorite Gruesome Playground Injuries. For tickets go to In the TEK Box Theater.
