The Roaring Girl

The Roaring GirlT1190122719
Sebastian has a problem. He's in love with a girl but his father won't agree to their marriage because her family are too poor. In desperation he turns to the one person who can help him, the fearless and feisty "roaring girl" Moll Cutpurse. In a London fuelled by greed and desire, the charismatic, cross-dressing heroine Moll has the world wrapped around her little finger. Cutting a joyously independent path through the underhand scheming and petty vendettas of Dekker and Middleton's hilarious city comedy, Moll proves more than a match for any man.
