Dead Accounts

Little Fish Theatre
777 Centre St San Pedro

Quick-witted Jack, a banker from New York, unexpectedly returns home to Ohio after several years in the Big Apple. His smart, acerbic, and yearning-for-more sister, Lorna, and his worried and talkative mother, Barbara, immediately suspect he is in some kind of trouble. Their suspicions are confirmed when Jack's estranged wife, Jenny, comes to town and reveals that Jack has stolen 27 million dollars. Set in a kitchen in suburban Cincinnati, this comedy tackles the timely issues of corporate greed, small-town values, and whether or not your family will always welcome you back, with no questions asked.

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...A New York Banker returns to his family’s Cincinnati home with wads of cash and a secret that’s about to rock their world in Dead Accounts, Theresa Rebeck’s darkly comedic look at the Red State-Blue State divide, now getting a terrifically acted Southern California Premiere at San Pedro’s Little Fish Theatre."

Will Call - Somewhat Recommended

"...Director Branda Lock handles her task admirably with a cast seemingly tailored for their roles,. Theresa Rebeck has been close to the top of the list of my favorite writers for the stage since I saw what may well have been her first play, "Spike Heels", so long ago, it isn't even listed in her bio. She conjures up smoothly evolving plots, generously sprinkled with laughs, here mostly at the expense of Mamma Barbara whose ratchet mouth must be powered by an Energizer Bunny battery. Unfortunately, inspiration failed her at the very end of this piece. There really is none and we' re left wondering what happened next...."

Showmag - Recommended

"...I always hate to say too much about a plot, because Theresa Rebeck is a master in dropping breadcrumbs to help us along the journey. Watching the events unfold, putting together clues as the characters interact - that's the joy of witnessing a really compelling story as it deepens. In Rebeck's revealing style, the family banter soon settles into revelation, as layer upon layer peels back the truth of Jack's life. In the process, a little matter of 27-million dollars knocks over the family's traditional values of right and wrong. The ending will leave you wondering...what would you do if you had 27-million dollars that no one owned?"
