The Pirate Code

A rollicking, slightly saucy tale of remarkable coincidence.

Thursday, July 6th, 2023


Thursday, July 6th, 2023

This is the true story of the infamous Pirates: CALICO JACK, MARY READ and ANNE BONNY, adapted for the stage By David Dunn.

In a rollicking, slightly saucy tale of remarkable coincidence, Mary Read and Anne Bonny find themselves, females, masquerading as males in the male-only world of cut-throat pirates of the Caribbean in the early 1700’s. The Pirate Code expressly forbids women from coming aboard a pirate ship. Mary and Anne survive through cunning and deception, forming a mutually beneficial attachment but history records that both along with Calico Jack are eventually captured by the Commodore and sentenced to death. What happens next? Thereby hangs our tale!

Suitable for 12 years old and above

Music and Songs by Mark Howard, David Dunn, Lydia Saroto and Peter Noble (10 original songs).
Choreography by Meg Dunn.
