VIDEO is of the Lesbian Pirates! medley, with integrated BSL and captioning. 

LESBIAN PIRATES! is a new musical based on the untold true story of the ruthless, maverick and lesbian pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read. These women met in the Caribbean in 1717 while cross-dressing as male pirates, fell in love, slaughtered swathes of men, stole treasure and escaped execution from the law.


Previously erased from history, this riotous, inspiring and incendiary female narrative uses original music and a cast of disabled performers to bring to life Anne and Mary’s sexy, violent and turbulent world.

Development supported by Unlimited, artsdepot, Unity Theatre Trust, the High Commission for Canada in the UK, and New Wolsey Theatre Testing Ground. A PlayWell Productions & Working Birthday co-production.
