WHO BE THE MAGGIE LASS? When Maggie was a little girl, her favorite book in the whole wide world was Treasure Island. She dreamed of becoming a pirate when she grew up. Instead, she became a copyeditor. Stuck in a dead-end job, Maggie watches her life slowly slip away, until a brutal robbery forces her to make a decision: From now on, Maggie will be a pirate. This disturbs her coworkers when she shows up dressed ready to plunder a galleon, but gradually, the office is infected by Maggie's piracy. When Maggie is fired, she attacks her boss, and is confined to a mental institution. There, it is up to a well-meaning but unimaginative young psychiatrist to save Maggie from life in a medicated stupor... and perhaps she'll return the favor.

ARR CREW Maggie the Pirate has a book by James Armstrong, and music & lyrics by Joshua H. Cohen. The Momentum Repertory Workshop of "Maggie" will be directed by Tom Hoefner, and will feature Mindy Kay Smith, Jackie Jacobi-McCauley. Christopher Duffy, and Michelle Silvani.

WHAT'S THE BOOTY FER? The workshop of Maggie the Pirate will be presented with minimal costumes and sets, focusing more on the storytelling elements of the show. The majority of the budget will go to rehearsal and performance space rental. Any additional funds will go towards future Momentum Repertory Company productions.
