Sebastian has a problem. He's in love with a girl but his father won't agree to their marriage. In desperation he turns to the one person who can help him, the fearless and feisty 'roaring girl' Moll Cutpurse.
In a London fuelled by greed and desire, the charismatic, cross-dressing heroine Moll has the world wrapped around her little finger, and she has a plan. Cutting a joyously independent path through the underhand scheming and petty vendettas of the London underworld, Moll proves more than a match for any man.
Making her RSC debut, Jo Davies who previously directed Opera North's acclaimed production of Carousel, directs Lisa Dillon as the dynamic Moll whose previous work for the RSC includes The Taming of the Shrew in 2012 along with The Knot of the Heart, Almeida; ITV1's The Jury and BBC1's Cranford.
