Scratchworks Theatre return with their raucous take on the heist of the century, featuring physical theatre, live music and clowning.

In the early hours of Thursday 8 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.
