Matriarchs, a stage play inspired by the meeting of Grace O'Malley – known as Ireland's 'Pirate Queen'

About

Join Royal Museums Greenwich for the online screening of Matriarchs, a stage play inspired by the meeting of Grace O'Malley – known as Ireland's 'Pirate Queen' – and Queen Elizabeth I at Greenwich Palace in 1593.

It brings together two iconic female leaders, each imbued with a lifetime of experience and knowledge and who in their pioneering roles as powerful leaders have breached the boundaries of male power and bias.

But now in their declining years both women are experiencing the negativity, doubts and fears of growing old.

International focus on gender imbalance, female empowerment and ageism make the themes in this play resonate for women everywhere today.

The screening will be preceded by a talk with Anne Chambers.
