Leo (Craig Parkinson, LINE OF DUTY) is a swaggering trader - an unreconstructed alpha male. Recently promoted, he wants to pursue riskier trades and bullies his underlings into going along with him. But how far can he push Teddy (Luke Newberry, IN THE FLESH) and Rosie (Ria Zmitrowicz, THREE GIRLS) before they reach their moral limits?
A gripping drama about ruthless profit, unbridled masculinity and urgent world events, FUTURES is produced by Dom Riley and written and directed by Daniel Marc Janes.
FUTURES was previously performed as a short play at London's Theatre503 in April 2016.
