THIEVES were not Taking Sides when they spotted a banner promoting the next Company of Ten production on the railings outside Westminster Lodge - they stole the whole thing.
The cast arriving at the Abbey Theatre on Sunday for the dress rehearsal of Taking Sides to find a space where their banner should have been.
The ties had all been carefully severed and the banner, which is a metre wide and over four metres long, had completely vanished.
Said David Stone, who is in charge of publicity for the Company of Ten, said: "This is a mystery but someone must have wanted it very much to have taken it down so carefully. It cost over �100 and we really need it back."
