Ballad TT.png

It's 1721, and London is abuzz with news of notorious pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read, currently languishing in Newgate Prison. It’s the perfect time for debt-ridden journalist Nathaniel Mist to exploit the public appetite and ghost-write a sensational (and hopefully best-selling) history of pirates. But as the balladeers and gossips on the streets of London build myths around the blood-thirsty, perverse lady pirates, Mist is forced to reckon with the real Bonny & Read...

The Ballad of Anne & Mary is an audio-adventure in five parts, starring musical sensation Christina Bianco, actress and comedian Sooz Kempner, Hamilton star Karl Queensborough, cabaret legend Le Gateau Chocolat, and more.

Fans of Hamilton, Outlander and Our Flag Means Death will love The Ballad Of Anne & Mary.
