The Pirate Queen - A Charity Concert

An epic and timeless story from the creators of Les Misérables and Miss Saigon.

23 Feb 2020

Based on the story of Grace O’Malley, the personification of Ireland, The Pirate Queen is an epic tale of love, honour, and piracy in Renaissance Ireland.

In a time when women were expected to learn skills to make a good wife in the homestead, Grace defies her father and earns the title ‘The Pirate Queen’, inspiring men and women alike to follow her. When the English begin to attack and subjugate Ireland, only Grace has the strength and intelligence to negotiate peace with the powerful Queen Elizabeth I.

With a score by Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil, steeped in Irish traditions and powerful ballads, The Pirate Queen is both timeless history and epic romance for the stage.

Starring Rachel Tucker (Olivier Nominee, Elphaba in Wicked – Broadway & West End, Come From Away), Jai McDowall (Britain’s Got Talent winner) & Matt Pagan (Collabro).

A charity concert production with proceeds to Leukaemia UK.
