BOUND CANVAS COVER .jpg

DR JAMES BARRY 

  An irascible 19th Century English military surgeon...

 

     Toppled corrupt medical systems across the world...

 

            Challenged dozens to duels...
 

                    Publicly confronted Florence Nightingale... 

 

And began life as a girl... 

'Bound' is the true story of Margaret Bulkley, an impoverished young Irish woman in the 1800s who disguised herself as a man as her only way out of poverty to become a surgeon in the English military.
 

As James Barry, he delivered the first successful Caesarean in Africa, toppled the corrupt medical systems around the globe, roped himself into duels and fell in love with the Governor of Cape Town, living every day on the edge, in fear his secret would be discovered…

NOTHING TO LOSE

This song follows the young, impoverished and destitute Margaret Bulkley at a cross roads. Given the opportunity to fulfil her dream and attend university but at the price of disguising herself as a man, she weighs up what she has to lose. Sacrifice her identity or secure a future?
