The Pirate Project: Improbable Theatre
Fancifully staging the escapades of famous female pirates of the past alongside intimate stories of personal bravery and derring-do from the performers’ own lives, The Pirate Project considers female identity and ambition today asking 'do we just need to be more like pirates to succeed?'
In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries pirates like Anne Bonny, Mary Read and Ching Shih often passed themselves off as men, disguised pregnancy at sea and even endured spells in Jamaican prisons to cut throats and steal booty for a living.
Here, three 21st century women set out on a quest to see if they can still out-think, out-sail and out-fight every man on the high seas.
What would a code of conduct for being a pirate in modern life demand? And do women want to become more gung-ho anyway?
