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.

Black Box Theatre

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 Blanche 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.

Vacationing at a lavish spa in the Swiss Alps as they have for 20 years, the retired Fred (Michael Caine) is happy to leave his days of composing music behind him, while Mick (Harvey Keitel) is near finishing what he believes to be his best work as an already accomplished film director. Nearing the end of their sojourn on this planet, Fred and Mick observe the exquisite splendor around them and ponder society's obsession with youth and beauty while coping with the reality of how fleeting such things are.  2015 European Film Awards, winner: Best European Film, Director, and Actor. 2015 Italian NAtional Syndicate of Film Journalists, winner: Best Director, Cinematography, and Editing. English, Swiss German, and Spanish languages.
