If a crime occurs and nobody finds it, is it still a crime? That’s what Rebeck’s Recession-era play, Dead Accounts, seeks to unravel. In Rebeck’s revealing style, the family banter soon reveals a little matter of 27 million dollars knocks over the family’s traditional values of right and wrong.   Watching the events unfold, putting together clues as the characters interact – that’s the joy of watching a really compelling story as it deepens. And the ending will leave you wondering…what would you do if you found 27 million dollars that no one owned?
