Lindsay Beard of James Island portrays the pirate Anne Bonny. Beard is inspired by the Bonny story. “It’s about being free and doing whatever you wanted, bucking the system and fighting The Man, if you will. I like strong women, especially during a time when women weren’t in that position.” She said she heard she might be a distant relation to Anne Bonny. “I haven’t done the genealogy myself. So I haven’t found it. But it’s a great folk tale for me about a powerful woman.”
