Fairytales for Grown-ups Dauntless - Grace O'Malley Pirate Queen - Livestream

Online streaming event
Person swimming under water

The Crick Crack Club presents a live-stream of Fairytales for Grown-ups: Dauntless: Grace O'Malley, Pirate Queen

This is a livestream ticket.

Debs Newbold gleefully delivers the boisterous, remarkable and inspirational story of her hero: Grainne ni Mhaille – Grace O’Malley – legendary Irish clan chief and queen of the sea.

Stowing away aboard her father’s ship aged 8, Grace became a 16th century force of nature. A multilingual, seafaring weapons expert, leader of 2,000 men, rebel, politician, kingmaker and slayer, prodigious lover, avenging hero and notorious pirate. Best of all, she was real.

From the west of Ireland to the court of Elizabeth I, from wild youth to even wilder old age, Dauntless is an epic celebration of uproarious storytelling, high drama and one fascinating 16th century feminist. No knights in shining armour need apply.

More about Debs Newbold:

Debs Newbold is a passionate and skilled performer with a gift for bringing the epic out of the everyday. She has made and performed work for the Royal Opera House, the BBC, Hay Festival, the RSC and Shakespeare's Globe. She also takes her work to theatres, festival stages and community spaces all over the world.

Debs’ work spans myth, legend and new writing and has seen her described as “a master of words and space” (Views From the Gods) and “sublime, a consummate performer” (Sam Lee). Her one-woman re-tellings of Shakespeare’s tragedies have toured internationally. Her genre-defying collaborations with renowned director John Wright have helped re-define contemporary storytelling, resulting in two highly acclaimed shows; Lost In Blue, and Under Her Skin. In 2022 Lost In Blue was nominated for both an OFFIE and a Standing Ovation Award after a two week run in London.

Running Time: 80 mins (no interval)

Suitable for adults 14+

Content: This performance may contain descriptions of birth, postnatal bleeding, sex, violence and death, contextualised within a paradigm of mythic narrative, archetype and metaphor.

Livestream tickets also include a separate link to a recording of the show that will be emailed out after the performance and accessible for 7 days.
