Additional Info

Amidst the late-night din of St. Patrick’s Day, Donna comes home to find a highly intoxicated stranger named Theo in her apartment. With no explanation of how he got in, she and her roommates try to figure out where he came from and how to get him out. Theo’s undeniable charm and habit for disappearing don't make it easy, however, and when the police show up things only get more complicated. 'Who is Theo?' is a mile-a-minute modern farce and mini-mystery all in one.
