Nobody likes Ben. Even Ben doesn’t like Ben. He bullies everyone in his life, including his roommate Kalyan, an earnest Nepalese immigrant. When Ben discovers that his school crush is marrying a straight-laced banker, he sets out to destroy their relationship and win her back.

Jesse Eisenberg’s The Spoils was first produced by the New Group in New York. It was transferred by Lisa Matlin and Ambassador Theatre Group to Trafalgar Studios, London, where it received its UK premiere in May 2016.

Critic Reviews

Jesse Eisenberg has written his biggest play to date, and his most interesting. . . . the kind of work audiences should enjoy, and have more of.

The New Yorker
Critic Reviews

[A] terrific, fast-talking, quick-witted serious comedy . . . beautifully written . . . Eisenberg writes funny, but he is also a real storyteller—moody and dangerous and even loving.

Critic Reviews

A worthy . . . contribution to the immortal gallery of black-hole masochists . . . His clever, frantic dialogue assumes an irresistible authenticity.

New York Times (Critics’ Pick)
Critic Reviews

Rings achingly true for anyone who’s grown up in a distorted prism of wealth . . . [A] brutally funny and deeply moving work.

Huffington Post
Critic Reviews
