In his new play Toxic Assets, Steven Tomlinson (Managed Care, Curb Appeal, American Fiesta) searches for the origins of the financial crisis in the psyche of an economics professor who becomes obsessed with cleaning up litter. His compulsion complicates his work as an economist and his relationships with family, friends and neighbors.

"As an artist, I'm trying to make sense of the disconnect between what we worry about (huge forces like markets and the environment) and what we can actually accomplish as individuals," notes Tomlinson. "These little things we do, picking up trash, making time to help one person get back on track, are they worth doing, even if they can't save us?"
