Newgate: the place where legendary outlaws such as Robin Hood and Captain Kidd met their fates, and where the rapier-wielding playwrights Ben Jonson and Christopher Marlowe sharpened their quills. While London's theatres came and went, the gaol endured. From the Peasants' Revolt to the Great Fire, it was at Newgate that England's greatest dramas unfolded.
