    This is an epic adventure story with strong women at the core that is ripe with rich theatrical possibilities. Anyone who has read it here raves about it.

    Completely kick ass piece of action and adventure, with woman leads, a gripping story, and a great delve into a historical period I didn't know much about. This play not only centers the female narrative, it does it while being wildly entertaining.
