This exciting full-length one-woman play is about the real-life, 16th Century female Irish clan chieftain and pirate; Grace O’Malley. It was written by Auburn-based playwright Ashley Schalow and won first place/one act category in the Bill and Peggy Hunt Playwrights Festival produced by Burien Little Theatre in the 2010/2011 season.
Bold Grace follows Grace’s life and times. Beginning with her first voyage in her father’s crew at the age of nine, Grace re-lives key points in her life until her death in 1603. Grace lived a full life, pirating around Ireland, England and Spain, commanding an army of 200 loyal fighting men, her own fleet of ships; she had two marriages, one lover, four children, and finally, a face to face documented meeting with England’s Queen Elizabeth I.
