Moll uses her beauty, her ingenuity and her ruthlessness to survive in a world where men have all the power and all the money. She shall not starve while she can trick a rich man into marriage, sell her body, or become the finest thief in the land. Accompanied by a medley of instruments, the Dukes strolling players recreate two dozen vivid characters - from Will Wiseman, who seduces Moll at a tender age, to Mother Midnight, Queen of Thieves; from Chastity the prostitute who specialises in clergymen to Jemmy, the Lancashire highwayman who loves Moll true. And it takes three actresses to portray Moll's long life, from her birth in Newgate Prison until she faces the gallows on Tyburn Hill.Performers Patrick Bridgman, Nora Connolly, Maeve Larkin, Francis Magee, Olwen May, Ted Richards.
