Daylight Robbery

Daylight Robbery

A spate of robberies in the genteel suburb of Didsbury, and a dead body in the open sewer that is the River Medlock, pose problems for Inspector of Detectives Jerome Caminada, Manchester's legendary 19th century policeman. The Manchester Guardian is attacking the police, and Caminada is under pressure from the Chief Constable to come up with a solution. With multi-roles and twenty three scenes, Daylight Robbery is a fluid and fast-moving comedy-drama.

With the exception of the central character who is always on stage, other parts are played by a small company.
