A fierce musical ride through love, larceny, and 17th Century debauchery!

Sexy, darkly funny and deeply moving – The Highwayman isn’t your grandmother’s period piece.

He’s a dashing rogue, undeniably charming, admirers fall over themselves for him. But beneath the wink and the smile lies a self-proclaimed sociopath. That’s our ‘hero’, our Highwayman, inspired by the infamous Alfred Noyes poem.

Prepare for a full-throttle musical gallop through the grimy underbelly of 1600s England, where love is as dangerous as a back-alley brawl. With a unique blend of original songs and lyrical dialogue painting the picture of a devasting love story in and amongst the crime ridden filth.

Think Romeo and Juliet rewritten by Quentin Tarantino, with a dash of Shakespeare taking on Fight Club. We’re talking a wildly entertaining, tragically romantic story that holds a mirror to our own messy, modern world.

Grab your tankard. Are you ready to get robbed?


Produced by OVO and Norwich Theatre

Music, Book and Lyrics by Kitty Morgan
