Production Name

Dick Turpin Rides Again

Production Genre

Production Date


2011 January

Ask anyone who the legendary Dick Turpin was and they might tell you that he was a daring and dashing highwayman who famously rode from London to York on his faithful mare, Black Bess. They may also tell you how he robbed from the rich to give to the poor. Well, this pantomime is VERY loosely based on this legend.
