Fourteen-year-old Jim Hawkins is serving ale in The Admiral Benbow Inn – when suddenly the door slams open and in strides Billy Bones, the infamous pirate, to change Jim's life forever…
Soon, Jim finds himself on board The Jolly Todger and setting sail on the high seas. Alongside him, the crew includes Captain Birdseye, Black Dog, Blue Peter, the one-legged Long John Silver, and a parrot called Alexa – and their destination: a mysterious tropical paradise in the Caribbean named Treasure Island. Or Skeleton Island. Depends who you ask.
This riotously chaotic adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's beloved Treasure Island is a collaboration between John Nicholson (The Three Musketeers, The Hound of the Baskervilles) and the physical-comedy theatre company Le Navet Bete, with four actors playing dozens of characters.
This amateur production is presented by arrangement with NICK HERN BOOKS.
