Welcome to the 3rd Annual SLIME conference. Join 100 animals, seven young translators, scientists and suits, and fellow humans and step just slightly in the future... Seated amongst the delegates, you might hear an otter swimming down an aisle, a dolphin whistling at your elbow or a seabird over your shoulder: animals too have something to say. We come together to face an insatiable creature,SLIME, which, like facebookslime or googleslime, is taking over. Ask yourself, “who is coming to save us?” The answer might surprise you….

Held entirely within a prison cell in 1722 Jamaica, two legendary pirates, Anne Bonny and Mary Read, have been captured and await the gallows. While one wishes only repentance, the other refuses to give up her life without a fight. An exploration of the human condition, 'Heroine' dives into the lives of Anne and Mary while they are forced unearth their pasts while facing their demise. When disguising oneself as a man is punishable by death, they compare their lives crossdressing among men: rising through rank or reputation, how they handled their love lives and what being a "real woman" is supposed to mean. Clashing sword fights, brutal wrestling matches and sharp as a blade humour bring these historical figures to the stage to explore what a life well lived truly is.
