Girls in the Gang

Girls in the Gang

by Raymond Storey and John Roby

October 26– November 12, 1989

Every bump in the night from one ocean to the other was the Boyd Gang.
Girls in the Gang

This show chronicles the rise and fall of the Boyd Gang, who robbed banks in the Toronto area in a series of daring heists in the early ‘50s. Although the headlines and notoriety have faded with time, Raymond Storey and John Roby re-examine the story from an intriguing perspective, shifting the focus to the women in the lives of the Boyd Gang… “the girls in the gang”. A joint production with Alberta Theatre Projects.
