About This Show

Misplaced Son is a peculiar dark comedy of errors that occurs when Sarge, a laconic killer-for-hire, and Jasmine, his nervous and impulsive novitiate, execute one Harry Schotz, a white-collar thief who lives alone. In order to fulfill their contract, they must find "IT" in Schotz’s house, but an unexpected knock at the door turns out to be Schotz’s abandoned-before-birth son, Warren. Unfortunate timing becomes dark farce as Sarge coolly assumes the role of Schotz, but as light is shed on the reason for Warren’s visit, unwittingly blunders into the role of the estranged father. Jasmine, intent on murdering Warren (or anyone else who gets in her way), reluctantly plays the part of the imaginary Mrs. Schotz as the pair of killers buy time in service of a solution. For Jasmine, the exit is obvious: kill the kid, find "IT", and get out. But in order for Sarge to remain true to his strict ethical code, he must negotiatie this accidental relationship, one which blossoms to the point where the lie is as important, if not more so, than the facts.
