Kasey Brown, Sam Bruce, and More Join Cast of Laura Hirschberg's HEART OF OAK at Everyday Inferno Theatre Co.
Fleeing an arranged marriage, Princess Alvida commandeers a pirate vessel and assembles an unlikely crew of laundry women, seamstresses, and cooks. As she struggles with opposing roles - pirate and princess - her betrothed finds himself falling for a woman he's barely met. Shanties and swordfights frame this theatrical tale of love on the high seas...
