WHAT’S ON: Scratchworks Theatre at AMATA

Scratchworks Theatre: The Great Train Robbery – Friday 16th of March at 7:30


“We make theatre. We tell stories. We make work from scratch.”

 – Scratchworks Theatre Company


At 7:30 on Friday, Scratchworks Theatre Company will be performing at AMATA as part of their acclaimed performance tour of Cornwall.


In the early hours of Thursday 8th 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?

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.



Tickets will be £12/£10 concessions (plus booking fee), and can be bought online from AMATA’s website.
