Jesse Eisenberg's The Spoils officially opens June 2, following previews that began May 27, at the Trafalgar Studios, for a run through August 13.

Eisenberg stars in his own play with Kunal Nayyar and Annapurna Sriram, all reprising their roles from the original Off-Broadway New Group production, newly joined by Alfie Allen and Katie Brayben.

Press notes describe the play as such: “Nobody likes Ben. Ben doesn’t even 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.”

The Spoils is directed by The New Group artistic director Scott Elliott, with set design by Derek McLane, costume design by Susan Hilferty, lighting design by Lee Curran, sound design by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen and projection design by Olivia Sebesky.

Ambassador Theatre Group and Lisa Matlin present The New Group production of The Spoils.
