Feel the love in 17th century England with slapstick show from Hannah Gregory
Featured as part of the Primary Lineup, The Highway Woman, written by Hannah Gregory and directed by A.J. Baldwin, will premiere at the 2023 Cincinnati Fringe Festival.
Known for her moody dramas, Gregory is excited to present a slapstick show celebrating platonic love set during the English Civil Wars. Gregory won the Producer’s Pick with Descent: a Murder Ballad in 2019, and the Critics’ Pick for The Belle and Boone Helm in 2021 and Wuthering: a musical on the moors in 2022. Audiences can expect fast-paced quips, physical high jinks, and a… what’s that? Oh, a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. The Highway Woman will resonate with those who love Hulu/BBC’s The Great and Amazon’s Catherine Called Birdy.
The cast features Brianna Miller as the titular highway woman Katherine Ferrers, Danitza Piper as Cordelia, Jared Earland as Tam; Dylan Shelton and Ellyn Broderick round out the cast with multiple roles as Player 1 and Player 2, and Haneen Adi supports as the cast’s understudy.

- Sunday, June 4 at 2:30pm
- Tuesday, June 6 at 8:45pm
- Thursday, June 8 at 7:00pm
