Description of Anne Bonney, Queen of the Pirates

Dianne Thompson Jacoby as a Pirate
Boisterous female pirate Anne Bonney tells the story of the infamous Irish Pirate Queen who cut a bloody swatch through the Blue Caribe. In this rollicking interactive performance with her rowdy fellow pirate Mary Reed and her true love, the notorious Pirate Captain Calico Jack Racham Anne shares fierce stories of life at sea off the coast of Florida and in the Bahamas during the Golden Age of Piracy!

As raucous Anne creates Pirate havoc on stage she shares tales of the adventures that brought her from her illegitimate birth in Ireland to become the most famous of female pirates while an audience member or two take part in the show becoming members of her crew – if they dare. Audacious Anne Bonney shares Pirate lore and history as she recalls the story of her brutal and thrilling life on a pirate ship, from pirate food to floggings to cutlass-wielding attacks… aarh!
