In the dangerous streets of 18th-century London, Smith a 12-year-old pickpocket, lives in the shadow of the hangman's rope. Then one day he steals a document from a gentleman - only to witness his murder minutes later. The activity section at the back of the play features information about life in 18th-century London, including maps from the period. There are also assignments covering a range of National Curriculum outcomes, plus detailed guidance on drama activities.
