2013London tour to schools, PRUS, YOIs and Unicorn Theatre


Protect your loved ones, whatever the cost.

Someone mugged Bruce’s mum and he is not having it. The shock is still visible in her trembling fingers, rippling out across the calm waters of their lives. He grabs his hoodie, his uniform, his cape and goes out to find the culprit.  

Cape questions the boundaries between our right to self-defence and taking the law into our own hands. It was performed and stage managed by a company of professionals and ex-prisoners.
