About the Event

By Lee Delong

With Ralf Wetzel

Music by Monique Laleeuwe

Masks by Ralf Wetzel

Song "Drowning" by Lee Delong

The piece explores the plight of a man who loses everything. Using comedy, mask, music, and movement, "The Heist" criticizes an exploitative, capitalist world.

The story opens on the mundane but happy life of small bistro owner and chef, Steve, who is suddenly thrown into the maelstrom of a global pandemic. Without warning or reason, his business is at the mercy of various restrictions and closures, bringing him to the brink of ruin. He is forced into a life of crime, at which he fails miserably. He seeks to understand the reason for his fate and finding no answers, he spirals desperately to rock bottom. When he nearly succumbs to the hopelessness of human struggle, an ironic twist of fate lights the path back to what he truly loves, though that love is compromised.
