The Highwayman

Sexy, darkly funny and deeply moving

Welcome, lovelies, to our tub-thumping pub singalong, set in the year 1666 but reflecting exactly who we are right here, right now in 2024.

Inspired by Alfred Noyes’ classic poem, The Highwayman tells the story of a doomed love affair between Bess and self-confessed sociopath Duval. Along the way we meet a cast of richly drawn restoration rogues and romantics – including a mysterious conquistador, a sadistic smuggler and a rip-roaring East End landlady. Not to mention special guest appearances by Nell Gwynn and King Charles II himself.

The Highwayman is about longing for better while trying to run from the worst of our past. It explores love, loss and the light in the dark. And it asks why we always seem to find the perfect knife on which to cut ourselves.

The Highwayman submerges the audience in a unique, genre busting sound world in which a live band joyously reimagines pub singalongs and folk ballads in super contemporary arrangements, influenced by electro swing, Adele, Billie Eilish and Kae Tempest. Book your ticket to the ride of your life.
