Described by Eileen Barrett
Written and Directed by Morris Panych
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.
“Playwright/director Panych’s comedy is also rich in the kinds of existential implication he has been exploring on stage for decades. And his Arts Club production is very, very funny.” –Vancouver Sun
“The Shoplifters sends small-time steak stealers into absurd and blackly comic territory.” –The Georgia Straight
