The Lyric Stage loves stories that focus on family, but wait til you meet Blue and HER family in Fast Company.   Blue’s mom, Mable Kwan, is a tough cookie and the best grifter who ever lived . . . and she raised her kids to be just like her. Son 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."

“Heralds the arrival of a highly talented and quick-witted young playwright.”  — OC Weekly
