Breathe Out Theatre presents That Golden Age by Rob Johnston

Thursday, 13 October 2016 - 8:00pm
 
Mary Read and Anne Bonny were two of the most notorious pirates ever to ply the waters of the Caribbean during the early Eighteenth Century’s ‘golden age’ of piracy. 
 
Commanding hundreds of men and hijacking dozens of merchant ships it took the dedicated Government agent Jonathan Barnett, sent out specially from England at the request of the Governor of 
Jamaica, to call a halt to their high-seas adventures. 
 
Breathe Out Theatre’s stage production ‘That Golden Age’ tells how Mary Read, an English publican’s wife, and Anne Bonny, the daughter of an Irish lawyer, became two of the most infamous women in maritime history, how they took men on at the dangerous game of piracy, and how they ultimately paid the price for bettering men in a world men had largely invented. 
 
Supported by Arts Council England and by The Merseyside Adventures Sailing Trust, ‘That Golden Age’ will be staged from Sept 2016 in small theatres and in non-theatre spaces across the UK and on selected sea-vessels around the coast of Britain.
