The Duelling Dames is an all female, multi-generational swordfighting play for all ages.
The Dames teach history with hilarity, astound with swordfighting skills, and are daring enough to bring audience members onstage.
Female empowerment? Yes! Anti bullying? We’ve got it! Workshops that disseminate violence in the media? Only the Dames do that!
35 minute show, plus a meet & greet.
The Quinquagenarian Queen and the Puerile Princess argue...about everything. The Queen believes rulers should be like a sword: Possessing strong hilts. The Princess believes a sharp tip, representing youth, is a better metaphor.
Fighting over how to fight, these loveable characters bring knights onstage, whom they train for minutes and minutes...for a battle that is a hilarious as it is real, for there are no winners.
A delightful tale that both excites families about history while teaching anti violence strategies
