RAFFLES – The Mystery of the Murdered Thief
Rumpus Theatre Company presents The return of the gentleman cracksman …
RAFFLES – The Mystery of the Murdered Thief . A sparkling whodunit based on the thrilling classics by E W Hornung
Harry “Bunny” Manders is convinced that his erstwhile partner in crime, the gentleman cracksman A J Raffles, drowned while escaping a daring theft aboard a transatlantic liner. But a chance reply to a newspaper advertisement reveals an entirely different scenario, and at once Bunny is embroiled again in his old life of burglary, mayhem, adventure and murder!
Bunny is played by the exuberant Ian Sharrock, hugely familiar to audiences from his ten years as Jackie Merrick in EMMERDALE, while his other TV appearances include HEARTBEAT, THE BILL, CASUALTY, WHERE THE HEART IS and – perhaps most memorably – as Jed Maxwell, Alan Partridge’s biggest and most scarily obsessive fan in I’M ALAN PARTRIDGE.
RAFFLES – The Mystery of the Murdered Thief promises much, much more of the same!
