These two burglars will leave no stones, stereotypes, or septic tanks unturned.

Brady and Denis have found one easy solution to save their house from the bank: burglary. Then, one night Brady steals a picture of a woman who is everything he is not – educated, wealthy, upwardly mobile, and African-American. And with that, a brazen new caper is born… leaving no stones, stereotypes, or septic tanks unturned.

Former Kendeda finalist Josh Tobiessen penned this bold new comedy after his Kendeda finalist script Election Day received glowing reviews in its New York premiere.
