Pretty Theft – Norwood High School – Spring 2017

Pretty Theft: A play about ballerinas, boxes and the dangers of beauty.

Norwood High School presents PRETTY THEFT, a play about ballerinas, boxes and the dangers of beauty written by Adam Szymkowicz, produced by special arrangement with Samuel French. After losing her father, Allegra falls under the wing of bad girl Suzy, only to find an unexpected friendship with Joe, an autistic savant. When things take a violent turn, Allegra and Suzy escape cross country and befriend Marco, a mysterious thief who claims he cannot be caught.

“Szymkowicz has not only taken the notion of theft and flipped it on its head – he’s taken a story about human beings at their worst and shown how we can claw our way back from the brink by finding the good within ourselves.” -The Villager

“… In Pretty Theft, the undercurrent of danger goes beyond quirkiness; it’s more subtle and ultimately more horrifying. The play takes place in a terrifying world where reckless people get hurt, and so do more or less innocent bystanders.” -The New York Times
