The Guthrie Theater presents a Theater Mu production of

Fast Company 

by CARLA CHING

Overview

Mable Kwan is the best grifter that ever lived. She taught sons H and Francis to be the best roper and fixer around. When youngest daughter Blue puts together the con of the decade, will they all get in on the action together or will one of them walk away with it all? It’s a show of smoke and mirrors, but underneath the grifting and game theory is a provoking story about family, destiny, perseverance and redemption.
