‘An Honest Gentleman’

By Cordelia Spence & Tim Lane
A musical play about East Anglia’s very own Dick Turpin

SATURDAY 30TH MARCH | 7.00PM | £12 / Student/Under 18: £6

Little is known of Thomas Easter except that he was born in Aylsham in Norfolk in 1715 and was hung at Tyburn 24 years later. However, his life was packed with adventure and intrigue. From North Norfolk to Putney Heath Easter plied his trade as a Gentleman of the Road, ‘raising contributions upon the public’ and, from the little that is known, he was a dashing and charming rogue. ’I rob the rich to give to the poor’. Ultimately betrayed by an accomplice and comrade, he danced the hangman’s jig.

Stuff of Dreams will take you on a rollicking Georgian adventure as we delve into the life and times of the Highwaymen of the 18 th Century.  There will be wine, women and song and where facts are scarce there will be glorious embellishment.

 

Tickets available here through the Quay Theatre (01787 374745 / www.quaysudbury.com)

Suitable for ages 11+ due to mild swearing, but parents may bring younger children at their discretion.
