Thick as Thieves

Theatre Royal Wakefield welcomes the 18th Wakefield Drama Festival. This annual event showcases the work of the best amateur drama groups across the region. Seven plays in seven days presented by seven different companies; a mixture of comedy, tragedy and drama.

Meet Barry and Steph, two burglars, they are not robin hood they are robbing houses. Steph Aston is a hard and organised burglar with ambition. Barry Ireland isn't the brightest, with a girlfriend and kids to support, he is finding it hard to go straight after his latest stint in prison.

We join the pair of burglars as they break into their latest house and after making a discovery that could change their lives forever.The night becomes more frantic and we find out more about what turned these two to a life of crime.

Although this is a very funny work of fiction, it is based on real life experiences and events that the writer has taken from interviews with criminals from around the country.

N.B. No budgies are hurt in the making of this production.
