About the Show

Nobody likes Ben (Jesse Eisenberg). 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 Kalyan (Kunal Nayyar), an earnest Nepalese immigrant. When Ben discovers that his grade school crush is marrying a straight-laced banker, he sets out to destroy their relationship and win her back. The New Group, in association with Lisa Matlin, presents The Spoils, a deeply personal and probing comedy written by Jesse Eisenberg, in a world premiere production directed by Scott Elliott and featuring Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Kunal Nayyar (The Big Bang Theory), Erin Darke (Still Alice), Annapurna Sriram (The Happiest Song Plays Last), and Michael Zegen (Boardwalk Empire), as the third show in the company’s 2014-2015 Season.
