  • Overview
    Alice ‘Diamond’ Hughes, so-called because of her propensity to wear large diamond rings on her fingers as ready-made knuckle-dusters, was the enigmatic leader of a 1950′s all-female London gang of shoplifters and thieves. Revered and feared in equal measure by her loyal members The Forty Thieves, this production is a fictional exploration of an evening in the life of Alice and her followers, an imagining of the world in which she moved, and the trappings of that world.
