Performed by Dave Tonge 'The Yarnsmith of Norwich', a specialist in medieval tales.
In 1561 Agnes Leaman was ducked in the River Wensum in Norwich. She was one of many men and women who were punished for 'ill rule' and 'evil behaviour'. Theirs were the petty crimes of drunkenness, theft and other misbehaviour. They were real people whose deeds are revealed from court records and the folk stories of long ago!
This performance is a fusion of factual stories taken from all 'classes' of society with fictional stories about beggars, thieves and pedlars, merchants, lords and kings.
Tickets: £6 (£3 concessions for students and OAPs).
