  • Overview
    The Roaring Girl is a fictionalized dramatization of the life of Mary Frith, known as "Moll Cutpurse", a woman who had gained a reputation as a virago in the early seventeenth century. The term "roaring girl" was adapted from the slang term "roaring boy", which was applied to young men who caroused publicly, brawled, and committed petty crimes.
