(August 29, 2012 – Burien, WA) – Burien Little Theatre presents the rip-roaring pirate play Bold Grace: The Voyages of the Pirate O’Malley, written by Ashley Schalow, in two pay-what-you-will fundraiser performances on Friday, Sept. 7 and Saturday, Sept. 8.
In this simply jaw-dropping one-woman performance, actor Anna Richardson brings16th-century Irish pirate Grace O’Malley to life. The real Grace lived a very full life, including pirating up and down the Irish coast, leading an army of 200 loyal fighting men and her own fleet of ships, two marriages, four children (one born while Grace was at sea), and even a documented face-to-face meeting with Queen Elizabeth I. Beginning with her first voyage with her father at the age of nine, Grace relives key points in her life until her death in 1603. Under the direction of Steve Cooper, Anna Richardson is so spellbinding as Grace you will swear you can feel the salt air on your face.
This show is suitable for ages 12-plus due to some adult language.
Bold Grace: The Voyages of the Pirate O’Malley will be performed at Burien Little Theatre on two different dates and at two different times: Friday, Sept. 7 at 8 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 8 at 7 p.m.
Admission is pay-what-you-will at the door. For reservations or more information, go online to www.burienlittletheatre.org or call the ticket office at 206-242-5180.
