Walking Shadow Theatre Company announces two public readings of a new full-length version of The Lives of the Most Notorious Highwaymen by John Heimbuch.
Originally a 2004 Minnesota Fringe Festival hit, this new full-length version culminates a week-long rehearsal and workshop process and is directed by Amy Rummenie. The readings feature Joe Papke, Keith Prusak, Matt Sciple, Buddy Haardt, Matthew Vire, and Amber Swenson.
London's heated summer of 1720. The financial bubble grows, investment mania fills the air, and England's Thief-Taker General seizes his criminal empire in the shadow of the Tyburn Gallows. But when a daring young highwayman takes the streets, he cuts a path through London that could undo everything. A historical adventure of ambition and betrayal set in the world of crime, investment, and the printing press.
