Meet Alma, a career shoplifter who prefers the “five-finger discount” over any senior citizen’s deal. When a grocery store theft goes awry, her elaborate life of petty crime is halted by an overzealous security guard and his affable mentor. With sharp-witted comic observations, Morris Panych has expertly drawn a cast of misfit characters that will leave you rooting for all sides to come out on top.
Content Warning: There are mature themes (such as poverty, inequality, religion, sexuality), re-current strong language, and violence in this play. There are dated cultural, racial and religious references. There is a graphic depiction of accidental self-injury. There are mentions of murder, suicide and assault. The authoritarian characters could be triggering to some audience members, but it is all meant to be a comedic commentary on capitalism and greed.
