Based on Daniel Defoe's account of the trials of Captain Rackham and his private crew in Jamaica in 1720, history meets myth in this real-life story of the remarkable, cross-dressing women pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read, and their fateful encounter with the infamous Jack Rackham, also known as Calico Jack.
'Bonny & Read' depicts the circumstances that led these two women to disguise themselves as men, go out to sea, and join the notoriously male-dominated world of piracy. This epic journey of twists and turns is a story of exceptional female brave, adventure, and survival against all odds.
'Bonny & Read' is a new musical play by Claire Novello, with music composed by Frederick Appleby, directed by award-winning director Kenneth Michaels.
"Hopefully, this rollickingly fun show will continue to be seen and... Bonny and Read's stories ...will not remain in obscurity" (British Theatre Guide)
