The Play
A fresh, bawdy and exciting adaptation of the 18th century novel that follows the life of Moll from a youth in prison through love, crime, motherhood, poverty, and eventual comfort. While Moll is its center, the play is carried by an ensemble of characters, each offering wonderfully theatrical and creative roles.
