THEFT By Eric Chappell (a Comedy)
Thursday 16 - Saturday 18 November 2017
The Village Hall, Escrick
John Miles is successful, determined and wealthy. When he returns from dinner out with wife Barbara and best friends Trevor and Jenny to find his house has been burgled, he's furious, particularly as the burglar may still be in the house.
And when the local copper appears from nowhere, John assumes they have found their bumbling burglar, Spriggs.
But as Spriggs starts to expertly manipulate, cajole and corrupt them, we begin to wonder if he's much, much cleverer than they think. With a hidden safe, childhood rivalries, guilty secrets and everything to lose, five very different people play an escalating and hilarious game of cat and mouse...

31 Hospital Fields Rd, Fulford, York YO10 4FS
Odd Doll take a trip to the seaside, where they find more than they bargained for. The only other inhabitant of the dilapidated pier is a rather sinister ice cream man. And he’s got some very strange stories to tell…
His mind-boggling collection of hysterical horrors includes Evil Seagulls, Zombie Donkeys, and Bingo Hairballs. But will anyone who experiences it live to describe it?
Stuffed with fun frights and ice cream chills, Seaside Terror is a celebration of the British horror and British holidays of the 1970s. Funny, nostalgic and visually stunning, Odd Doll use their trademark brew of puppetry, clown and specially composed music to fill the stage with nerve-shattering shocks. Suitable for ages 12+ www.odddoll.co.uk/dates/
