Female pirates, sailors, and a drag queen; knife fights and blank verse; danger, love and really bad weather — seven souls find themselves without wind or current on a slowly sinking ship in Wet, or Isabella the Pirate Queen Enters the Horse Latitudes by Liz Duffy Adams. This theatrical romantic adventure on the high seas is a liquid narrative on the notion of freedom. The play uses inventive language and sharp humor to put a new spin on the popular pirate theme, and examines a war-torn world in an unknown time, which is sure to give insight into our own.

The cast of seven actors includes Laurence Brown, Thomas Deák, Jo Anne Glover, Liv Kellgren, Don Loper, Jennifer Eve Thorn and Chris Walsh.
