Artsdepot residency dates: Mon 3 – Fri 7 June 2019
Lesbian Pirates! is the untold true story of the ruthless, maverick and lesbian pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read. These two women met in the 1710’s while cross-dressing as male pirates, fell in love, slaughtered swathes of men, stole treasure and escaped execution from the law.
Natasha Sutton Williams and Working Birthday will be collaborating with a cast of disabled performers to tell the story of these badass, gender-queer, sexually liberated women. During their Artsdepot residency they will be developing this swashbuckling adventure about disabled women who are fully possessed of their own sexuality and refuse to be victims.
