About The Treasurer:

Ida Armstrong is broke, lonely and fading fast. And she's spending all of her children's money, forcing her son to assume the unwanted role of the Treasurer: an arrangement that becomes untenable the more he questions his devotion to her. In this darkly funny, sharply intimate portrait, Max Posner chronicles the strained ties between a son and his aging mother, and the hell of a guilty conscience.

Our The Treasurer Review

The Treasurer by Max Posner, currently at Playwrights Horizons, is a small gem of a play. Dark, funny, and disturbing, the play seems too insightful for a 28-year old to have been its author. But then, the playbill notes and opening monologue by the main character reveal that the subject is autobiographical, so it makes sense.
