Fast Company 

directed by BRIAN BALCOM

Back by popular demand

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.

Tickets range from $9 to $32. Seating is general admission.
