1997. Charlotte, North Carolina.
David Ghantt, supervisor at the Loomis Fargo vault, never returns home from his night shift.
When law enforcement officers investigate his workplace, they find a locked vault, a missing armoured van, and no sign of David Ghantt. Cracking open the vault door, they find it empty. All the money has been stolen.
As a nationwide manhunt for Ghantt and his accomplices begins, one question is on everybody’s lips: what drives a person with no previous criminal record to steal nearly eighteen million dollars?
THE SECOND BIGGEST BANK ROBBERY IN AMERICAN HISTORY tells the outrageous true story of how money and love combine to drive ordinary people to extraordinary deeds.
Produced by the team who brought you Subject To Time and Wrath of Achilles, this new play sees four actors play over thirty real life characters, bringing the story of one of America’s most infamous crimes to the stage in a unique and energetic way.
