Welcome to the Sinners Club, a club like no other, where the band never stops and the drink keeps on flowing. Your hostess for the evening has some confessions to make, some songs to sing about love, jealousy, loss, and a story that will take you to hell and back. Sinners Club is pure gig-theatre from the same team who brought you ‘The Bloody Ballad’, set in a drinking joint where all lost souls are welcome.

A chance meeting between two children on the streets of Edinburgh leads to a terrible reckoning, leaving Jenny and Tommy forever bound together by blood and fate. Brutal and beautiful, Hywel John’s remarkable new play glimmers and cuts like a jewel, fusing raw epic romance with guttural urban poetry to tell the story of a secret generational legacy of love, violence and fury.
Hywel John is the Welsh writer of Pieces (★★★★, The Guardian) and Rose (★★★★, The Telegraph, The Times and The Evening Standard).
Escape The Scaffold
Co-produced by The Other Room, Mongrel Thumb and Theatre503
By Titas Halder
Directed by Hannah Price
Wed 19 April – Sat 6 May, 7.30pm – The Other Room, Cardiff
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.
