The Shoplifters

By Morris Panych

An Arts Club Theatre Company Production

Comic mishaps for society’s haves and have-nots.

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.

Contains mature themes and some strong language.

Running time: 1 hour, 45 minutes, including one intermission
