The Shoplifters follows Alma, a career shoplifter who prefers the “five-finger discount” over any senior citizen’s deal. When a grocery store theft with her anxious sidekick goes awry, her elaborate life of petty crime is halted by an overzealous security guard and his affable mentor.

With sharp-witted comic observations, playwright Morris Panych, who also directs, has expertly drawn a cast of misfit characters that will leave you rooting for all sides to come out on top.

The Shoplifters is about small people with small lives; people who want something and will do anything to get it,” he says. “I’m really fascinated with what’s happening in the world right now, with people being left behind, and I wanted to write about that.”
