From the playwright who brought you HPT's award-winning productions of St. Nicholas, Port Authority, and The Night Alive, Hyde Park Theatre presents Conor McPherson's The Good Thief: a small-time Irish hood's story, by turns funny, touching, and profoundly harrowing, of a simple job gone horribly wrong.

When we did this play in 2011, critics raved:

"This unsettling yarn of an Irish thug is spun flawlessly by Ken Webster."
- The Austin Chronicle

"This is the sort of part Webster expertly sinks his teeth into, making it his own. . . Irish storytelling magic. . . As he always does, Webster manages to bring to vivid life the character he portrays with just the faintest twinkle hint in his eye and quiet charisma. . . Webster makes it seem effortless."
- Spike Gillespie/Spike Speaks

The HPT production features award-winning actor Ken Webster (Critics' Table Award for St. Nicholas & Thom Pain, B. Iden Payne Award for Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll).
