Escape the Scaffold is a dark and dangerous psychological thriller set against the background of a rapidly changing world. Three best friends hunker down in their student house, forced to make decisions that will mark them for the rest of their lives.


Get a job. Get married. Put down the tequila and take the money. Save yourself. Love triangle turns to murderous betrayal. Youthful idealism is tested, paranoia takes hold, and real life melts into a nightmare world. The basement is filling with water and there is a monster in the house…

Escape The Scaffold combines classic thriller elements with pitch-black humour and magic realism. 

A co-production between The Other Room, Mongrel Thumb, and Theatre503 to present the world premiere of a new play by Titas Halder.
