The Thief: Now online

Nathan is a thief. Edward is an alcoholic jazz genius. When Nathan sees Edward play, something unexpected happens, but he owes Waleed so he knows he’ll have to improvise.

Since 2015 we have been touring The Thief, our short film written by Michael Bhim and directed by Esther Baker, to young people in schools, pupil referral units, young offenders institutions and youth clubs across London. The film has been accompanied by workshops led by ex-prisoners and professionals involved in the production.

We are excited to announce that The Thief is now available online.

Take a look at the film here and catch the behind the scenes film to find out more about the creation of The Thief from those involved.

To arrange a screening and workshop of The Thief for young people please contact jessica@synergytheatreproject.co.uk.
