A powerful play about wealth, narcissism, and entitlement: "Eisenberg writes funny, but he is also a real storyteller-moody and dangerous and even loving."-Newsday

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, an earnest Nepalese immigrant. When Ben discovers that his grade school crush is marrying a straitlaced banker, he sets out to destroy their relationship and win her back. The Spoils is a deeply personal and probing comedy written by Jesse Eisenberg-Academy Award-nominated actor, playwright, and contributor to the New Yorker.

"While Ben would surely say The Spoils is all about Ben, Mr. Eisenberg has seen fit to surround his leading narcissist with characters who live and breathe and react independently...His clever, frantic dialogue assumes an irresistible authenticity."-Ben Brantley, The New York Times (NYT Critics' Pick)
