Great Train Robbery

E-mail Print PDF


Tue 6-Sat 10 June 2017

In the early hours of Thursday 8th August 1963, the heist of the century was under way. Whilst the world was tucked up in bed, 15 men put a finger up to the government and stole 2 million British pounds from Her Majesty's Royal Mail train. Five days later the first clues were found, the gang was busted and the rest is history. But what about the ones that got away...?

Join the four forgotten females as they leave behind their kitchen-sink lives and embark on a madcap adventure of mischief and mayhem. Using a raucous combination of physical theatre, live music and clowning, Scratchworks will unfold the untold tale of the unlikely female four.

[Great Train Robbery is one of two productions presented by Scratchworks Theatre this week. Catch their acclaimed production, NEL, on Thu 8 or Fri 9 June, or see both shows on Sat 10 June!]

At the end of the show, as the cast took their much-deserved final bows, I realised I had just seen a production with minimal use of props, no scenery and only four cast-members. They painted a picture so clearly and with so little that the show was a marvel to behold. Great Train Robbery is a must-see.

Flawless physical comedy blended seamlessly with human sadness… Nel will knock your socks off

They are a talented group moving seamlessly from music to acting to mime, but what the show demonstrates above all is their fantastic imagination
