Alma Tavern



See how an ordinary apprentice carpenter from East London became the legendary jail breaker and hero of the people, whose fame spread across oceans. Witness his daring and miraculous escapes! Watch him outwit judges, jailers and the Thieftaker General – until the hangman’s noose beckons and it’s now or never, neck or nothing… A playful, political tale of daring and resistance.

“A visual and political feast.”

“Incredible props, amazing
action, wonderful story,
delightful music – just bloody great!”

– audience comments


Performances at 3pm and 7pm.  The show lasts seventy minutes and is suitable for adults and older children.
