March 19th to April 7th, 2019 at Centaur Theatre

Two-time Governor General Award-winning playwright, Morris Panych, pulls out all the comedic stops in his hilarious examination of the effects of capitalist culture on the haves and have-nots. Alma, a feisty career shoplifter with serious street cred, spends her time helping her less fortunate neighbours, and sticking it to “the man”, by redistributing what she sees as undeserved corporate profit. Dom, a righteous crime fighting evangelist having a very busy first day on the job, catches Alma and her skittish sidekick, Phyllis, with a couple of rib steaks stuffed up their skirts. Otto, the world-weary head security guard is called in to interrogate but it soon becomes apparent that he has a more magnanimous opinion of Alma’s sticky fingers because, according to her, “Stealing isn’t always about taking things.”
