An hilarious, rip-roaring, swashbuckling, family-friendly retelling of the classic story ...

Fourteen-year-old Jim Hawkins is serving ale in The Admiral Benbow Inn

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!

Their destination?

A mysterious tropical paradise in the Caribbean named Treasure Island

Or Skeleton Island

It depends who you ask

This riotously chaotic adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s beloved Treasure Island is a collaboration between John Nicholson (The Hound of the Baskervilles) and the physical-comedy theatre company Le Navet Bete, with their four actors playing dozens of characters.

It follows the company’s hilarious, hit adaptations of Dracula - The Bloody Truth and The Three Musketeers

So if you’re looking for a rip-roaring, swashbuckling, family-friendly retelling of a classic story to perform with your theatre company or drama group, look no more
