The Rogue Players
Chandler Patton, playwright; Mary Margaret Kunze and Nadia Sheen, casting dirs.
Casting "The Legend of Bonny Anne Bonny," a new play. Synopsis: "Anne Bonny was a real person, a pyrate, as notoriously brutal as she was beautiful. Hers is a tale of intrigue, romance, adventure, betrayal, violence, sex, drinking, cursing, gambling, singing and sword-fighting; a tribute to Rogues, Knaves, Whores and Fools. Like a sea chantey ringing out over the tides, the play drifts in and out of poetic verse. It will feel like a drunken troupe of actors telling stories in a shadowy old sea tavern."
