The widely acclaimed Theater Mu’s latest can be found at the Guthrie’s Dowling Studio, where playwright Carla Ching’s Fast Company follows the schemes of a dysfunctional family of grifters. The elaborate story centers on the Kwans, a shamelessly disreputable family led by Mable, an experienced con artist who plans to pass on her expertise to her son H and her daughter Francis. Much to Mable’s shock, however, her disregarded daughter, Blue, proves to be the most adept at carrying on the family business. When Blue lands a potential million-dollar score, unanticipated complications force her to recruit her crooked kin, each of whom brings their own shady motivations. Directed by Brian Balcom, this local premiere promises to be a comedic sure thing.
