Excerpt from press release:  

ATTN: Whedonites, Whovians, Trekkies, Rebel Fighters, & Everyone in Between!!! What do epic battles, a robot with a secret crush, and an ass-kicking space-pirate add up to? Hint: it’s the love child Star Wars and Dr. Horrible should’ve had.


  • See a live-action space battle between a real Pirate Queen, a space dictator wannabe… and a philandering starship captain!
  • Be serenaded by a robot as it discovers human love!
  • Celebrate geek culture! Curse the patriarchy! Come explore outer space with us!

The Pirate Queen of the Stars is the next Megan Phillips & Peter Cavell collaboration. After the
breakthrough success of PEOPLE SUCK (Ed Mirvish Entepreneurial Award, Patron’s Pick, Best of
Fringe), Meg ‘n’ Pete return with their next hit: a high-concept sci-fi musical comedy!
