‘We’re not friends. We used to be friends. We were only friends because we were in the same place at the same time.’

Three best friends reunite in their old student house. Before it was roast chicken and high hopes for the future. Now people are being hunted outside. A love triangle turns to betrayal as real life becomes a nightmare. The basement is slowly filling with water and there’s a monster in the house.

Escape the Scaffold is a dark, psychological thriller from the writer of the recent ‘highly imaginative…excellent’ Run the Beast Down, Titas Halder, at the Finborough. The production is brought to you by two champions of new writing, the award winning Theatre503 and The Other Room alongside exciting up and coming production company Mongrel Thumb.

This electrifying play premieres at Theatre503 in London before transferring to The Other Room in Cardiff in April.
