Dumb and Dumber's adventures in corporate America: Adam Szymkowicz's new comedy, The Fat Cat Killers, couldn't be better timed, what with protests against the money establishment making headlines from sea to shining sea. Flashpoint Theatre Company's production offers three excellent performances and satiric, if naive, insights into the heartlessness of big business.
Scene One opens with Steve (Robert DaPonte) making a pitch to his boss: "I think with more responsibility and more money I can be the best Steve I can be." Once he's fired, as is his pal Michael (Sean Lally), they cook up a plan to get both revenge and money. The problem, with both the plan and the play, is that they're stupid slackers and seem more like middle schoolers wearing bad ties.
