Lucy Foster & Improbable: The Pirate Project

Lucy Foster & Improbable: The Pirate Project

17th April 2012

Fanciful stagings of the escapades of Anne Bonny, Mary Read, and Ching Shih - swashbuckling female pirates of the past - combine with intimate stories of personal piracy in the performers’ own lives. See these bloodthirsty damsels out-sail, out-think, and out-fight every man on the high seas.

How did they do it? Could she still do it today? Has her 21st century counterpart got the guts to stick a dagger between her teeth, fire a broadside and make off with the booty?

In The Pirate Project three women set sail in search of their inner pirate. Expect sword fights, theatrical storms and cross dressing aplenty. Ha Harrrr!

“A delightful piece of theatre.... her humour is zany, creeping up on you with its odd, quirky vision of the world; her script is evocative and elegant ....(it) ends with one of the simplest and most beautiful images I have seen in the theatre recently.” The Stage on Lucy’s show, Oh My Green Soap Box.

Created by Lucy Foster and the company.
Lucy Foster in Co-Production with Improbable, in association with Ovalhouse.

Tickets £6 / £3.50 concs.
Doors open 7.30pm, show starts 8pm.
