A fast-paced comedy thriller in which five very different people play an escalating and hilarious game of cat and mouse.
John and Barbara Miles return from a celebratory dinner with their friends Jenny and Trevor Farrington to discover that their country house has been burgled. The burglar is Spriggs, a career criminal, who initially convinces everyone that he is the local policeman sent to investigate the crime. Once unmasked as the thief, Spriggs skillfully manipulates and corrupts each character; exposing guilty secrets, childhood rivalries and character flaws, all of which threaten to disrupt seemingly happy marriages and lifelong friendships. Through shrewd observations and stinging one liners Spriggs provides the audience with an entertaining, thought provoking and witty social commentary on key issues such as marriage, money, morality and crime.
