During final rehearsals for Flew The Coop – Stage Door Johnny – dropped in and spoke to Lost Watch Theatre Company founders, Rianna Dearden, Olivia Hirst and Agnes Wild, as they put final touches on their new production.
Flew The Coop is a true story: Events are told exactly as they happened, apart from the ones that are completely made up.
“It’s 1943. Rosa Rauchbach and Horace Greasley are creating a little slice of history, and stealing a lot of chickens along the way.”
The Rauchbach Greasley Association Society Club (RGASC, for short) will tell you all about it. They have a shared obsession with their two national heroes, a fierce pride in theiNot that that’s going to stop them
Multi award-winning Lost Watch present Flew the Coop, inspired by the true story of Silesian translator Rosa Rauchbach and Horace Greasley, the British prisoner of war who escaped over 200 times to see her.
