Scuttlers is a play about youthful disaffection, protest and violence, drawing on the history of the Scuttlers, the youth gangs of nineteenth-century Manchester. It was first performed at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, on 5 February 2015.
The play is set in Ancoats, Manchester, in 1882, where rapid and tumultuous social change is being driven by the Industrial Revolution and its appetite for cheap labour. With a dense, newly formed urban population living amongst the constant rumbling of the mills and noxious air pollution, the frustrations and grievances of the young mill workers get channelled into street gangs, fighting over their territory with belts, fists and knives.
Six generations, twenty-three characters one very special piece of furniture. Tanya Ronder’s thrilling play is an epic tale of belonging, identity and the things we pass on.
On the last day of junior year, the East High gang can't wait to get the summer started – they're ready for summer jobs, money for college and to have fun.

While Sharpay schemes to steal Troy's heart from Gabriella, her brother, Ryan, hopes to win the Star Dazzle Award. Everything comes to a head at the talent show, where the group has to remember their motto: "All for one, and one for all."
