Despite the runaway success of his novel Robinson Crusoe, the author Daniel Defoe is up to his ears in debt and desperate to write another blockbuster.
When he falls into bed with the notorious courtesan Elizabeth Atkins, raised in Colchester, the stories she tells him about her action-packed life give him a great idea. He’ll turn them into a novel called Moll Flanders and it’ll fly off the shelves. But he hadn’t bargained on becoming entangled in Elizabeth’s tumultuous intrigues and adventures himself, or falling in love with her…
The world premiere of Nick Perry’s unfaithful adaptation features a cast of terrific actor-musicians in a mashup of 18th century bawdiness and 21st century humour. Join Moll as she takes Dan on the ride of a lifetime!
