The world premiere comedy will open the D.C. theater's 2014-15 season.
The world premiere of Morris Panych's new comedy The Shoplifters is now in rehearsals at Washington, D.C.'s Arena Stage. Drama Desk Award winner and two-time Tony Award nominee Jayne Houdyshell (Follies) makes her D.C. stage debut in the play, surrounding a career shoplifter whose life of petty crime is halted by an overzealous rookie security guard and his ambivalent mentor. Take a look as Houdyshell and her costars Delaney Williams (HBO's The Wire), Jenna Sokolowski (Clybourne Park), and Adi Stein (Body Awareness) gather in the D.C. rehearsal room.
