Pirate Queen In 1593 the two most powerful women in the British Isles came face to face for the first time. One of them was Queen Elizabeth I of England. The other was legendary Irish pirate queen Grace O’Malley. History says they were enemies. Rumour has it they became friends.

Inspired by this real event, Pirate Queen re-imagines the stories of Grace and Elizabeth, in an adventure play about pirates, palaces, war… and peas.

Which of the scouts will be prepared for what comes next?
