Miscellaneous notes from the author
Full-length comedy with music - a modern take on the life of a notorious 17th century figure. Four settings, but created by the company moving furniture, otherwise bare stage.
When cross-dressing criminal Moll Cutpurse agrees to 'marry' Sebastian, it is all part of the escort service she provides for gentlemen of society. In reality, young Sebastian wants to marry Mary, but his father has refused, so he tries to deceive him into believing that he intends to marry the notorious Moll instead.
