A rollicking extravaganza across the high seas, from the British Isles to the steamy Caribbean, Lady Pirates Give No F*cks unpicks the lives of two of the baddest besties ever: Anne Bonny and Mary Read.

2018 Adelaide Fringe
In early 2018, we premiered our first Deviant Women live shows, Julie D’Aubigny and Madame Blavatsky, to rave reviews at the Adelaide Fringe. Taking our signature mix of historical storytelling and comedic banter to an audience, the live show delivers an eye-opening romp through the lives of two of history’s most outrageous women. But this is no ordinary live podcast, Deviant Women Live is flamboyant and boisterous theatre, mixing sketch comedy with animation, storytelling and, of course, a bit of banter.
