'Pirate Laureate of Port Town' Coming To The Writer's Center In Bethesda


Bethesda's Flying V indie theater company will debut its pirate-themed poetry production tomorrow (Friday) at the Writer's Center (4508 Walsh St.). "The Pirate Laureate of Port Town" will run from Friday to Feb. 17 at 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and at 2 p.m. on Sundays. The six-person play was written by Zachary Fernebok and will be directed by Jason Schlafstein: In the world of The Pirate Laureate of Port Town, the power of poetry trumps that of any sword, pistol, cannon, or cutlass. That’s why the Pirate Laureate is the most important member on any pirate crew. Finn, a pirate of poetics and wit, must choose between the greater of two booties: his peerless pirate crew, or the land-locked love of his life. The Pirate Laureate of Port Town mixes a unique blend of upbeat, animated humor and lyrical tenderness in a realm where piracy and poetry are as inseparable as messages and the bottles that carry them.
