THE SHOPLIFTERS

By Morris Panych

February 7–March 9, 2019
Granville Island Stage
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.

Running time: Approx. 1 hr and 45 mins (including one intermission)
