Review by MORNA MURPHY MARTELL
June 06, 2016

What I liked

Based on actual cases, eight women in a therapy group confess why they shoplift and their reasons are clearly emotional. One gal steals to give gifts to her cold mother; another senses magical properties in mascara; an older gal steals to get back at her fish-loving husband; a mousey receptionist finds a new identity in a sexy red jumpsuit; a bold Texas gal steals rather than wait on the checkout line; a child of two hippies is sick of their dumpster diving for old clothes and spoiled food; and then there is the recognizable film star, bewildered by her own need to spend and steal in equal amounts. Narrated by a store detective with a back-story of her own, it’s a fascinating show.

What I didn't like

Over too soon.

My overall impression

Its an intriguing concept and a sociological statement about women’s needs and frustrations. Terrific acting.
