The time is 1718 and the place is coastal Carolina. There we meet Edward Teach - better known as Blackbeard. This legendary pirate isn't presented in a sentimental light - he's neither hero nor heel, but portrayed rather as a realistic, if somewhat inefficient, businessman. Blackbeard and his crew have been granted pardons if they agree to give up piracy. But somehow they can't kick the habit. The story touches on women's lib in an offbeat way and takes a stand against capital punishment. But it's mostly lighthearted fun - with a dash of romance.
"Delightful, tuneful and witty romp about piracy on the high seas." - The Record
