Pioneering theater company Arena Stage kicks off its 65th season of showcasing works from the Americas with the world premiere of The Shoplifters, a highly anticipated comedy from contemporary Canadian playwright Morris Panych. Senior citizen Alma -- a career shoplifter played by Tony nominee Jayne Houdyshell, in her DC debut -- has her life of petty crime interrupted by a battle of wills with an overzealous security guard. A cast of oddball characters, played by Helen Hayes Award winner Jenna Sokolowski along with local favorites Adi Stein (Theater J's Body Awareness) and Delaney Williams (HBO's The Wire, Arena Stage's A View From the Bridge), round out the cast in this sharp new satire.
