Moll Flanders’ mythic drive for love and survival led her to astonishing adventures—romantic escapades, multiple marriages and a career as an infamous London thief. A free adaptation of Daniel Defoe’s classic novel, the play begins on the eve of Moll’s hanging at Newgate Prison as she tells her story to the minister, who is bent on offering her a last, unlikely chance at salvation. The play tracks a double journey of transformation for both Moll and the minister, who cannot help being mesmerized—and moved—by her astounding tale. Midnight and Moll Flanders explores the influence of gender, class, free will and luck in an era as wildly entrepreneurial as our own.

Media Reviews

“Brilliant structure and use of language.” —Best of Milwaukee

Midnight and Moll Flanders is the work of a sure-handed and deft writer who succeeds where many better-known dramatists have stumbled—adapting a sprawling, large-canvas novel to the stage.” —Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“Kohler’s work brims with intelligence, solid development, good language and colorful characters.”—Shepherd Express Metro

“A clear, sure-handed adaptation that stays true to Defoe’s story while emphasizing the question of what most influences a person's life—circumstances or free will.” —Bouquets & Brickbats
