Scuttlers archiveIt tells the story of the Scuttlers who were Manchester's original gangs. Throughout the 1870s and beyond, the streets of Openshaw, Gorton, Ancoats and Salford were terrorised by rival groups of young mill workers fighting for control. With their bell-bottoms and floppy caps they fought with blades, fists, feet and the heavy ends of their leather belts. Scuttlers is a thrilling and alarming story of young people trying to navigate a life without respect; where their parents have let them down, homelessness is inevitable, and where a sense of place and purpose can only be found on the streets. Scuttlers is a brilliant, bloody play about the amazing energy of young people. Based on real court reports, it's timeless and timely with themes that resonate with remarkable clarity 150 years on.
