Respected author Daniel Defoe is writing a new novel. Following the brilliant success of Robinson Crusoe, Daniel decides that his next book should be about a woman. But which woman will he choose?

Enter the notorious Moll Flanders, raised in Colchester as an orphan. Living a life of continu’d variety, Moll is twelve years a whore, five times a wife, twelve years a thief and eight years a felon in Virginia, before growing rich, living honestly and dying repentant. A colourful life to say the least.

A new and unfaithful adaptation by Nick Perry, reimagined by a cast of terrific actor musicians, and full of 18th century bawdiness! Join Moll as she takes Daniel on the ride of a lifetime – her lifetime.

Directed by Ryan McBryde, who also recently directed Pieces Of String:

“Rendered with immense clarity in director Ryan McBryde’s polished, moving production”
