[ARCHIVED] A Play on Swords: Pirates vs. Hollywood

Newsflash

Join A Play on Swords on Wednesday, September 9, 4:30 p.m., for a virtual presentation of "Pirate: History vs. Hollywood."

How much do you know about pirates? How much of it have you learned from television and movies? Did pirates bury their treasure? Did they make people walk the plank? Were parrots their preferred pets?

Learn about the reality of piracy and how it differs from popular conceptions with Captain Zeph! Plus, enjoy an exhibition of some of the tools of the piratical trade.
