The age of the highwayman is drawing to a close and the road is running out for its most famous son.
After killing an amateur bounty hunter in Epping Forest, Dick Turpin takes fight again, slipping the net, and very nearly slipping from the pages of history. That is, until he pops up in Yorkshire, living a secret life under a false identity. But Dick Turpin is about to discover that the past has a habit of catching up with you.
He’s been lucky so far, but how much longer will that luck hold out? A momentary lapse in judgement could cost him his life.
A Noiser production, written by Danny Marshall. With thanks to James Sharpe, Professor Emeritus at the University of York, and author of Dick Turpin: The Myth of the English Highwayman.
This is Part 3 of 3.
