ABOUT THE SHOW
It’s 2009 and Larry’s in a pickle. The market has crashed and he and his friend Richard are facing financial ruin, jail time and worse--they’re afraid their wives will find out. Together, they craft a scheme that will solve all their financial and legal problems, by arranging the theft of a valuable piece of jewelry worth millions. Enter Frank and Henny, two bumbling burglars they hired who just can’t seem to get the job done. Will they beat the deadline before their world comes crashing down? This fast-paced, dark comedy explores the consequences of greed, lust, and entitlement that will keep the audience, and characters, guessing until the very end.
