It is a thief, sort of a pickpocket. In Medieval times, men and women carried their money in a purse on their belts. A cut purse would brush up against them, cut the purse and take the money out of the slit.

Theatres were goo places for cut-purses to operate because they were crowded (people stood rather then sat) and peoples attention was focused on the stage/actors rather than their purses.
