A double bill of sensational stories of audacious women, ambition and London society, in contemporary re-workings created by the company.
The Roaring Girl by Thomas Dekker & Thomas Middleton
A rebellious London underworld, led by fearless and feisty ‘roaring girl’, Moll Cutpurse, collides with its upper classes in Dekker and Middleton’s bawdy city comedy. As gender, class and convention are subverted, can the underdog become the hero?
The Beau Defeated by Mary Pix
A biting satire on social aspiration, this riotous play follows two ambitious women in search of respectable husbands. Written by Mary Pix, as popular in her day as her male contemporaries, The Beau Defeated shows us a wild world full of colourful characters who will stop at nothing in the pursuit of fame and glory.
