Emmerdale’s Ian Sharrock plays the lead character

The Mystery of the Murdered Thief an adventure play based on the thrilling classics by E W Hornung comes to Greenwich this March.

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 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 obsessive fan, in I’s Alan Partridge which has just been voted the funniest scene in any sitcom in a UK Gold poll of 100 top comedians.

The show is coming to Greenwich Theatre from March 15 to 18.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
