THE BALLAD OF MAGGIE MAY

Hell hath no greater fury like a woman betrayed.

unnamed (1)

Set against the harsh and often brutal existence endured by ordinary women in Georgian Britain’s pre-industrial cities, “The Ballad of Maggie May” is a powerful drama that exposes the myth of Jane Austin’s idyllic English society.
Based on true events in 1830’s Liverpool and the practice of shipping convict slaves to Australia, “The Ballad of Maggie May” is a grippingly dark, violent, yet often bawdy tale about an innocent girl’s struggle for survival and deliverance. In a journey that casts her into hell and beyond, from betrayal, destitution, disease and prostitution, to deportation as a convict bound for Van Diemen’s Land, only one thing is keeping Maggie alive – a vow of revenge against those who wronged her.
