In the early hours of Thursday 8 August 1963, the heist of the century is under way. Signals are scrambled, phone lines cut and millions of pounds of cash stolen. Five days later the first clues are found, the gang is busted and the rest is history. But what about the ones that got away?
Using a raucous combination of physical theatre, live music and clowning, Scratchworks will unfold the untold tale of the four feisty forgotten females from the Great Train Robbery, as they leave behind their kitchen-sink lives and embark on a madcap adventure of mischief and mayhem.
Scratchworks are an award winning physical ensemble who create playful, accessible theatre, from scratch. Founded in Exeter in 2013, they share a passion for creating original stories and combine a range of different theatrical styles.
