Dark play about the dangers of beauty
Beauty can be a double-edged sword. Adam Szymkowicz's challenging play details a ballerina who winds up on the wrong side of the tracks. When violence unexpectedly rears its head, she’s forced to flee, only to collide with a mysterious thief who claims to be untouchable. Dark and challenging, Pretty Theft canters all the way to its tense finale. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
"Disturbing but touching...Mr. Szymkowicz writes quirky plays about contemporary topics like online dating and gender roles, but there always seems to be something - a knife, a rope, a dead body- in an unexpected place."
