Thick as Thieves is a new comedy by Mark Whiteley. It tells the story of two hapless criminals, in the midst of a burglary, getting more than they bargained for.

In the middle of a bit of house robbing, Steph and Barry stumble upon two dead bodies.  One a budgie, and the other an old man, laying there with “one sock on and one sock off and a big gash on his head”. Our hapless duo struggle with what to do with their newly acquired friends. As the night becomes more frantic and frenzied, life in crime isn’t all what it set out to be. Well what would you do with a dead body?!!!!

Starring Matt Booth (credits include Emmerdale ITVMe & Me Dad Hull Truck Theatre) and Kivan Dene (credits include Bouncers Reform Theatre Company).
