Everybody Shops! Fast-paced and comic, The Shops tells the fictional story of a thief; his daring raids interwoven with his trial and his psychological analysis. The story darkens as the terrible secret emerges of what has happened to the thief’s collection. Meanwhile, the dancing chorus of shoppers merges into a meeting of Shoppers Anonymous. Suitable for anyone who has ever shopped or desired something they couldn’t have.
