  • By Cordelia Spence & Tim Lane
  • Ages 10+
  • 1748
  • A musical play about East Anglia’s very own highwayman...

    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 Norfolk and Suffolk 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.

    Join Stuff of Dreams at Christchurch Mansion where the theatre company will take you on a rollicking Georgian adventure delving into the life and times of the East Anglian Highwaymen of the 18th Century.  There will be laughter, live folk music and song – and where facts are  scarce there will be glorious embellishment!
