Den of Thieves

by Stephen Adly Guirgis

Directed by Jeremy Landes

Maggie is a newly single, junk-food-binging shoplifter looking to change her life. Paul is her passionately convicted sponsor in a twelve-step program for recovering thieves. Maggie's jealous ex-boyfriend is a charismatic wannabe Puerto Rican small-time thief of uncertain ancestry named Flaco who spins a grammatically challenged but persuasive yarn about $750,000 in unprotected drug money sitting in a safe in a downtown disco guarded by an easily distracted crackhead. When things don't quite go according to plan, this bickering quartet of hapless thieves finds themselves at the mercy of Louie "The Little Tuna" Pescatore, a reluctant heir to the criminal empire run by his father. The penalty for stealing from the Tuna is death, but Louie offers them a difficult solution. Tied to chairs and able to move only their mouths, they must now fight for their lives by out-arguing each other as to who deserves to live. Verbal gymnastics and the struggle for self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-love produce a high-octane battle for survival.​
