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!
