Thief archiveThief is about Sailor, a victim who refuses to see himself as that, who fights back. Sailor has been abused all his life. At 27 however, he is now in control of the circumstances that created the 'monster' he has become. At least that's what he believes. Sailor is a man struggling to maintain his last ounce of humanity and self-respect, while doing what it takes to survive the brutal underworld of civilised society. His ethos of subverting accepted moral behaviour and self-expression is drawn loosely from the works and life of Jean Genet. Set in a timeless world of dockside taverns and the cobbled shadowlands of foggy ports, the story charts one man's survival. A squalid survival some still find themselves embracing even now, as much as society would like to deny that is the case. Importantly, however, Thief has no message. It's there to provoke thought and discussion and hopefully, entertain, albeit on an extremely dark level.
