The Good Scout

by Glenn Chandler

Presented by Boys of the Empire Productions

9 October – 2 November

Inspired by true events: a story of espionage, Scout’s honour and forbidden love.

In the 1930s, Baden-Powell and Von Ribbentrop, Hitler’s ambassador, decreed that British boy scouts and Hitler Youth should learn from one another.

In Bassington, England, the local troop play host to a cycling party of Hitlerjugend – but are the German boys cyclists or “spyclists”? For Will and Jacob, two Rover Scouts on the cusp of manhood, it is a visit that will change their lives forever.

★★★★★ “You will be richly entertained. A revelation.”

★★★★★ “Moments of laugh out loud humour and unashamedly high camp are accompanied by an ever present vein of of underlying threat. A gripping 80 minutes.”
Edinburgh Evening News

★★★★ “The full package – fun, sweet, and heartbreaking.”
