Or: How not to pull off a jewel heist! A charming yet slightly overconfident cat-burglar plans to pull off his final job – stealing a cursed ruby on the night before his wedding! The only things standing in his way are an officious but suspicious night watchman, an occasionally amnesiac escaped convict who is out for revenge, and an alarm system that has a mind of its own! A fast-paced knockabout farce that will keep you guessing if anyone is actually who they say they are, and who has got the real cursed ruby!

Wonderful little farce about a jewel heist gone wrong. Some great slapstick moments and strong performances from a small cast. Only on until Tuesday 8th so worth trying to catch it before it's gone!

A great laugh of a show. Just like my love life - 45 minutes of euphoria. A very dashing, handsome, would-be jewel thief along with two idiots in clever situations. Well written piece, perfect for an afternoon at the Fringe.

Good fun. Three guys, a handful of props and lots of laughs.

Took a punt today as liked the sound of it, but whilst I had a few laugh out loud moments, it had a lot of promise, but didn't deliver. Was expecting a lot more and the plot needed a bit more depth and comedy to it. Just needed a better flow and at times felt it was repetitive and kind of meandered towards the end. Good acting and like I say some comedy moments but just lacked a certain something.

Didn’t know what to expect, but really thought this was cleverly written with fantastic performances from the cast. Hopefully we will see more work from this company. Well worth a visit.

What a gem of a show! If you want an hour of good laughs then this is a must watch. Wonderful performances all round from the three actors who are all clearly having a great time and have excellent chemistry with each other! Would 100% recommend! 5 stars!

This show was entertaining, clever and with some great twists. Very good actors and such a shame thst it is not on for a longer run. See it while it lasts. Very enjoyable.

Wonderfully chaotic, confounding, comedic caper. Plenty of laughs, lost trousers and losing track of who’s got the jewel - it really didn’t matter, as I walked out chuckling! Would definitely recommend if you want something fast-paced and funny!

What a roller-coaster of a show! Fast paced, packs a punch. Chemistry of the actors is stunning. Filled with wit and incredible comedic...timing. You'll be wondering if you've stolen the ruby! Don't miss out on this farcical jewel heist.
