ESCAPE THE SCAFFOLD
"A hallucinatory nightmare"
“We're not friends. We used to be friends.”
A love triangle turns to betrayal as real life becomes a nightmare. The basement is filling with water and there's a monster in the house.
Following hot on the heels of his first play Run The Beast Down, Escape The Scaffold saw Titas' first two plays play back to back in London and regionally. His debut plays saw him nominated for Best Writer at the Stage Debut Awards.
Escape The Scaffold played at Theatre 503 and The Other Room in March - May 2017.
