The Life & Opinions of Mary Read, Gentlewoman Pirate

Mesdames et Messieurs... Those most honourable and truthful of raconteurs, the Queynte Laydies, do hereby present a fantastical history of acclaimed harlot and criminal, mistress Mary Read who, disguising her woman’s breasts, godlessly did maraud upon the seas, conducting scandalous acts of piracy, sexual deviance and all manner of unholiness, and knowingly did compound her criminality through association with the likes of one Captain ‘Calico Jack’ Rackham and known red-head and Irish woman Mistress Anne Bonny, as they did cooperate in acts that to speak of will astound the ear...

When Mary’s ship is attacked by pirates, she has a choice: resist... or join the infamous crew?

coming soon…
