Four train robbers were never caught.What if the anonymous four were women, hired to clean the robber's hide-out? After all in 1963 who would suspect a woman? Using a raucous combination of physical theatre, live music and clowning Scratchworks uncovers the truth about history's forgotten women.

Non-stop invention and hilariously funny.

Sadly we couldn't get the live show to Cornwall, but this film of the stage play is the next best thing. Devised by women in an HM Prison, The Guardian described it as exquisitesinging with everyday poetry as if the devising had unlocked a waterfall of creativity.
