    The Roaring Girl is a Jacobean “city comedy” inspired by a notorious historical figure: Mary Frith, alias Moll Cutpurse, who was known for dressing in men's clothes, fighting duels, performing in the public theaters as a musician, and consorting with thieves and criminals.

    In her stage depiction, she is also a Puck-like figure, mediating among the rest of the cast— young lovers, disapproving parents, fashionable gallants, bored housewives, and disreputable highwaymen—all while smashing the gender binary with her rapier wit and her actual rapier.
