"There are crosses, double-crosses and schemes devious enough to impress the most jaded flimflammer."
When con games are the family business, watch your back because it's not just about the score, it's about who you can trust! Meet the Kwans: a Chinese American family of expert con artists, grifters and thieves. But when daughter Blue masterminds the job of the decade stealing the world's most valuable comic book, it might just spell disaster for the whole family, including her brothers Francis and H and their mother Mable. Pitting new game theory against old-school cons, truth against illusion and family bonds against betrayal, it's a race to see who will come out on top in this fun, stylish crime caper.
Written by Carla Ching, directed by Amy Poisson, and featuring Daniel Arreola, Mariko Kita, Kevin Lin and Sara Porkalob, FAST COMPANY is the next ride on the fun train, from the company that brought you the steampunk adventure, THE CLOCKWORK PROFESSOR.
Running time is 90 minutes with NO INTERMISSION.
This production is produced in association with the Theatre Off Jackson and enjoys support from 4Culture and the Office of Arts & Culture Seattle.
FAST COMPANY was commissioned as a part of the EST/Sloan Project, a collaboration between New York's Ensemble Studio Theatre and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to develop new plays about science, technology and economics
(Ticket prices at the door increase to $18 General, $15 Students/Seniors/TPS)
