Three thieves break into the same gallery on the same night. They’re all intent on stealing the same Extremely Valuable Painting. They’re bound to meet and it’s bound to get messy.

Join our thieves as they discover what makes art Extremely Valuable and what Extremely Valuable really means. An existential comedy caper about the power of frames and the absurdity of labels. From the team behind multi award winning Lights Over Tesco Car Park.

Art Heist is produced by Poltergeist in association with the North Wall Arts Centre.

WINNER! The New Diorama & Underbelly Untapped Award 2019. Supported by Arts Council England.

★★★★ – ‘Beneath its (often hilarious) gags and comic chaos, the show worries away at questions of value, meaning and expression’

★★★★ – ‘A cleverly choreographed comic crime caper’

★★★★ – ‘Wacky, weird and wonderful’


Poltergeist make puzzle-box theatre that collaborates with a live audience. They experiment with genre, and wrestle with big, difficult ideas under the surface. Their show, Lights Over Tesco Car Park won the Samuel French New Play Award 2018.
