Art Heist

Art Heist

New Diorama Theatre · 15 OCT - 26 OCT

Three thieves break into the same gallery on the same night.

“A hit at the Edinburgh Festival this summer, this comedy caper will have you “grinning and scratching your head at the same time” according to the Guardian’s critic.”

Overview

They're all intent on stealing the same Extremely Valuable Painting. They’re bound to meet and it’s bound to get messy.

An existential comedy caper which asks the Big Questions. What is art? Why is it Extremely Valuable? And, how much can I get for this on eBay? From the team behind multi award winning Lights Over Tesco Car Park.

Critic reviews

It's all performed with a real sense of beguiling silliness by the company. But whilst it's an enjoyable time, the themes running through it don't penetrate

WhatsOnStage

An experimental comedy caper about a botched art theft that prioritises style over substance

The Stage

It leaves you grinning and scratching your head at the same time. Just don’t expect answers. Like all the best artists, Poltergeist are too clever to restrict interpretations

The Guardian

It is all quite good fun and quite thoughtful, but it becomes trapped in its own stylistic strait jacket and never quite takes off into either a full blown comedy caper or a meditation on the value and meaning of art

Lyn Gardner for Stagedoor

Blending movement, humour, music and audience interaction, the show serves to brighten up what would have otherwise been a dark and convoluted narrative to unfold

The Upcoming

Though Art Heist doesn't really let us in on why exactly it hangs its own DJ, one can still find some food for thought in this entertainingly chaotic caper
