Criminal Genius follows the antics of small time crooks, Rolly and Steve - a dysfunctional father and son tag team - who are hired to torch a restaurant. After botching the job they end up in a seedy Niagara motel where they hope to find solace only to be confronted by Phillie, the drunken motel manager, and tough talking criminal accomplice 'Shirl the Pearl'. Add in the unexpected wild card Amanda, and these desperate and absurd characters must come up with an idea to save themselves. What follows is fast, furious and insanely funny right to the end, as the play draws to its inevitable conclusion. The cast includes veteran Shaw actors Ric Reid and William Vickers, as well as Artistic Director of Lyndesfarne, Kelly Daniels, Gemini Award-winning actress Sarah Murphy-Dyson, and introduces recent Brock Theatre Arts graduate, Rob Macmenamin.
