Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas by Candlelight: Hug More Thugs
Do you think the criminal justice system is a soft touch? Do you think that life is too easy for criminals? Would you like to bring back hanging? Then this show is for you!
During the show, criminologists Lesley McAra and Susan McVie (University of Edinburgh) will bring you the stories of both offenders and victims. You’ll be challenged about which group are more deserving of hugs.
You’ll also have the opportunity to be stopped and searched live on stage!
You’ll leave wanting to hug more thugs.
