I saw it so clearly - you and I in this house, dressed ready to depart. Framed beautifully in this mirror. It was like a freeze frame, stuck. Then the image shatters and you crumple with the glass.

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.

Praise For…

'Paranoia infuses every instant of Escape the Scaffold, an intense psychological thriller from rapidly emerging writer Titas Halder. A savage slice of social commentary with a broad surrealist streak... Powerfully atmospheric, genre-defying drama that deftly blends horror with dystopian thriller.' The Stage ★★★★
