Fast Company

Presented by Lyric Stage of Boston | March 4 — March 27, 2016

Mable Kwan is a tough cookie and the best grifter who ever lived . . . and she raised her kids to be just like her. Francis is the top roper around and H is the number one fixer. But it’s Blue —  the outcast of the family — who surprises everyone by putting together the score of the decade. Fast Company is a fast, funny, and dangerous theatrical crime caper that will keep you guessing about who's on top and who's getting conned. As playwright Carla Ching wrote, “I could say that Fast Company is about grifts, game theory, and magic. And it is. But at its essence, it's about family."

Reviews & Press

"Director M. Bevin O’Gara oversees a cohesive, snappy production with some glossy effects that are rooted in the bedrock of Cameron Anderson’s deceptively simple scenic design, which takes an urban motif of sooty-looking brickwork and industrial red piping. But those gray surfaces double as de facto chalkboard for Garrett Herzig’s sophisticated projection design, which spells out in animated chalk lines the play’s various chapter titles and different settings." — WBUR The Artery

"The tautly drawn four-hander is making its New England premiere at Lyric Stage Company of Boston, in a production that director M. Bevin O’Gara unspools at a quick pace and gamely infuses with a sense of intrigue." — The Boston Globe
