Once Were Pirates at Melbourne Fringe Festival
Words - Julia Howland

Once Were Pirates was a look into the lives of pirates once removed. The withdrawals of the open sea, the yearning for freedom and the stark realisation that if one came across someone who rubs you the wrong way, you CANNOT kill them.
Or can you?
Shane and Gareth give civilised life a go; job interviews, game shows and even a few collard shirts! But let's face it, the real world sucks. And being a pirate is just way cooler.
Written by Daniel Czech, starring James Cook and Ben Clements. They look super serious in these photos but I have a feeling they'd be fun to go boozing with. As long as they brought the parrot and the sword.
