The Thief

The Thief $13.99

Jan Needle & Vivien Gardner & Stephen Cockett

Published by Collins

The action takes place against the contrasting settings of a contemporary school and an off-limits cave system

Kevin is wrongly accused of theft in school, but rather than defend his innocence, he pursues his dream of finding treasure in the local caves, leading his friends to potential disaster

The follow-up material explores a variety of ways in which to perform the play. Students are encouraged to consider in depth such issues as what it's like to have a criminal in the family as well the themes of self-deception and prejudice

Using photographs and newspaper extracts, it also looks at the history of some of the British caving systems. Numerous suggestions for writing, speaking and drama activities are also included
