About the Show/Event
Information for The Pirate Queen - Charity Concert Production at London Coliseum, West End (Musical). Based on the real-life story of history's Grace O'Malley - an Irish Chieftain and notorious pirate, The Pirate Queen is an adventure chronicling the compelling, inspiring heroine who led an extraordinary life as a rogue, lover and mother in 16th-century Ireland. To protect her people and save her one true love, O'Malley must confront the one woman more powerful than her - her fierce rival, Queen Elizabeth I of England.
