2017 Production announced!

The Cutlass Crew

Our 37th original commission by the team that brought us Rain Dance in 2010!

Music by Stuart Hancock
Libretto by Donald Sturrock
 
At the Feast of Misrule, the world is turned upside down. Masters dress as servants. Fools become prophets. And Gentlewomen become fierce pirates.
 
Our story, set in 1583, is based on the adventures of Lady Mary Killigrew. Inspired by the spirit of mischief, she forms a Cutlass Crew of her female servants and sets sail to plunder.  But when Lady Mary offends Good Queen Bess, she risks losing treasure, liberty and life.  Will she be pardoned and the natural order be restored? Climb aboard to find out!
