Abstract/Summary:
A 19th century British highwayman, or robber, rides up to the inn to tell his lover Bess that he is leaving to make a fortune on a robbery and that she is to look for him the next night. Tim, the jealous inn servant also in love with Bess tips King George's soldiers off about the robbery and they hold Bess hostage knowing the highwayman is coming back for her. What happens next? That I won't say at the moment. You'll have to be patient and wait until you hear the story!
