The Cincinnati Fringe Festival will be premiering a new play, "The Highway Woman," in June.

This June, the 2023 Cincinnati Fringe Festival will feature the world premiere of a new play, “The Highway Woman,” written by Hannah Gregory and directed by A.J. Baldwin. 

The play is a PG-13 comedy about Katherine Ferrers, a legendary highwaywoman in Renaissance-era England.

According to a press release, “The Highway Woman” is “a slapstick show celebrating platonic love set during the English Civil Wars” that will have “fast-paced quips” and “physical high jinks” that will leave audiences with “a warm, fuzzy feeling inside.” 

The show will play at Gabriel’s Corner (1425 Sycamore St.) on these dates:

  • Sunday, June 4 — 2:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, June 6 — 8:45 p.m.
  • Thursday, June 8 — 7 p.m.
  • Friday, June 9 — 8:45 p.m.
  • Wednesday, June 14 — 7 p.m.

The cast includes Brianna Miller (Katherine Ferrers), Danitza Piper (Cordelia), Jared Earland (Tam), Dylan Shelton and Ellyn Broderick (Player 1 and Player 2, multiple supporting roles), and Haneen Adi (understudy).
