They promised war instead of kisses…
Fury Theatre & Badass Broads present the SAST 4 production of Nobody’s Wench: Six Tales of Pirate Women on the Rolling Seas.
More feared than Bluebeard, Blackbeard or any ol' Beard are the pirate women from history in our 4th annual Short Attention Span Theatre new plays festival. Get ready for adventure with Grace O’Malley, Red Delahaye, Sadie the Goat, Ching Shih, Jeanne de Clisson and Anne Bonny & Mary Read! Nobody’s Wench attacks each story with gusto and more stage combat than an Errol Flynn movie could shake a stick at. Featuring fight choreography by David Woolley (The Swordsmen), Glenese Hand (Bare Knuckle Productions) and Fury’s artistic director Mark Dodge, Nobody's Wench is sure to impress! The show premieres on International Talk-Like-a-Pirate Day, September 19th, so get ready for a swashbuckling good time!
Nobody’s Wench is partly funded by a 2015 Part-time Faculty Development Grant from Columbia College.
