Welcome to the seaside city of Massalia, nestled in the south of France. It’s the dawn of the 20th century, but things aren’t looking bright. A group calling themselves The Six engineered a sinister cultural revolution and united Europe under one banner, all beholden to the Emperor. Saffron and Zinnia are a married lesbian couple doing their best to defend the people and fight evil wherever they find it, battling with swords, words, or whatever they can use. Opposed by villains like Lord Buxton Blue, Piker Pendulum, and The Red Rapscallion, the Ladies help where they can and seek to bring down this corrupt regime. The flame of hope is still burning bright in the Swashbuckling Ladies Debate Society.

Could Have Missed The Pain
The Ladies' trip to sunny Spain takes an unexpected turn when they discover all forms of dancing have been outlawed. Now they must face off against a vindictive Irishman to earn the right to get toes tapping again. It’s time to cut it loose!
Rollicking good time!
I recently found this podcast and binged all the episodes. It's so fun - I love the characters, premise, and storylines. Long live Madame Liberté, Madame Equalité, and Madame Fraternité!
What a delight!
The actors are all incredible. The writing is very clever and funny. The entire production is so well done. Give it a try!
