Den of Thieves

by Stephen Adly Guirgis
Feb 17 & 18  |  7:30 pm  |  Studio A, The Rita
Feb 18  |  2 pm  |  Fusion, Downtown Kenosha

A hilariously dark and shockingly aware comedy. If you heard about $750,000 in a lightly guarded safe, would you do what Maggie, Paul, Flacco, and Boochie do? Follow this ragtag collection of robbers as they attempt to crack the safe full of cash despite run-ins with support groups, relationship problems, and the mob. Stephen Adly Guirgis douses this struggle for survival with strangely lovable characters, outrageous dialogue and hilarious situations in Den of Thieves.

One of America's most iconic plays.  The faded beauty of a Southern plantation collides with the harsh realities of a New Orleans tenement when Blanch DuBois comes to live with her sister Stella and husband Stanley. The tension grows thick as the humid night air until passion and desperation spark an explosive encounter that changes them all forever. With great compassion and vivid, poetic imagination, Williams spins this poignant and luminous story of lost, secret desires, and abandoned hope.

The Lobster  |  Feb 9-12

Greece/UK/Ireland |  2015 | 118 min  | Yorgos Lanthimos  |  IMDB

In this wickedly funny protest against societal norms, we are shown a bizarre, dystopian, near future where being single is considered a detriment to society. Single people are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner within 45 days or be transformed into animals and sent off into The Woods. The film functions as a mind-bogglingly weird, deadpan commentary on the fallacy of monogamous unions as a surefire means of staving off loneliness. The Lobster is a hilarious and bracingly weird story about love, loneliness and animals. 2015 Cannes Film Festival, winner: Jury Prize, Palm Dog, and Queer Palm. French and English languages
