Den of Thieves

I need one body and three thumbs, you can choose the who, whys and wherefores among yourselves

Welcome to the world of disorganized crime. Cracking a safe may not be the perfect road to recovery for kleptomaniacs Maggie and Paul but, when her ex-boyfriend Flaco entices them with a plan for the perfect crime that only a bunch of idiots could f**k up, what could possibly go wrong?

Den of Thieves was performed to prisoners, staff, families and invited public audiences.
