A Kay Meek PLAY Series Presentation
By Morris Panych
Grosvenor Theatre

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.

“Rich, smart comedy” – Vancouver Sun

Running time: 1 hour 45 minutes, including one intermission. Contains mature themes and some strong language.
