Act 1 starts with an introductory scene and the actual story starts at a hairdresser’s with Mrs. Wirth, Mrs. Woolf and Mrs. Westerberg. The story then moves on to Emil (the main character) getting ready to go on a train journey to Berlin to give money to his grandmother - 140 Marks! A man called Mr. Snow meets him on the train with two women. Soon the two women leave and it is just Mr. Snow and Emil left on the train. In the middle of the journey Emil falls asleep and Mr. Snow robs him of the money. The problem is that Emil has vandalized a statue back at home and the police are onto him and he is now chasing Mr. Snow in Berlin!

In act 2 the first scene was a café named Café Josty. We created an amazing sound scape for this scene. We improvised and created characters such as Evil Babies, Posh Diner and waiters. In act 2 we finally catch the dry and corrupt character of Mr. Snow. The not-so-professional police officer, who goes by the name of Officer Weiss, finally seizes the infamous Hanover bank robber and takes him to custody. In the end Emil, Toots and their elite team of detectives are the heroes of the hour. We had lots of fun rehearsing and delivering a great performance on two nights!  Gabriel, Aditya, Max and Kiryan
