is a crime caper based on the extraordinary story behind the theft of Edvard Munch's expressionist masterpiece from an Oslo museum in 2004.

Oslo police are closing in on David Toska, the criminal mastermind behind an audacious cash robbery when two incompetent thieves burst into the Munch Museum in broad daylight and ask for directions to Norway's most famous painting.

Amazingly, they emerge with two priceless paintings, The Scream and The Madonna.

Norway's no.

1 detective is pulled off the hunt for Toska and sent after the paintings.

So begins a high profile and often bizarre game of cat and mouse as police attempt to track down these national treasures and arrest those behind the robbery.

But things don't run smoothly for robbers or the police as both begin to adopt increasingly unconventional tactics.

The play was written and directed by Boz Temple-Morris, in collaboration with investigative journalist Kris Hollington, and recorded entirely on location in Olso with many of Norway's leading actors.

The exact circumstances of the recovery of the paintings have been shrouded in mystery since 2004 though new evidence has now emerged about the dealings between the police and their most wanted man.
