By Eric Chappell
Director - Roger Licence
Nothing can give an actor or performer more pleasure than to hear the raucus laughter of an audience,
however I am not sure that we will hear a great deal of that during this very cleverly written play!

ReviewsClever dialogue, an intriguing plot and superb acting make for another great evening.s entertainment at the Manifest Theatre.
Theft, a comedy thriller by Eric Chappell, opended at the Oxford Road theatre in Manningtree on Tuesday evening. Produced and directed by Roger Licence, this is yet another in the continuing and long line of outstanding and successful production by this talented group.
Set in an isolated country home, the play describes what happens when the owners and their two guests discover the house has been burgled and the thief is still on the premises.
The laughs come thick and fast from the very beginning and the many twists and turns as the drama unfolds keep the audience guessing to the very end.
There are just five perfomers - all on stage for most of the time, and everyone excelled. This is certainly one not to be missed.
