It’s pirate ships and salty old sea dogs for Summer 2020 in Quantum Theatre’s swashbuckling new adaptation of the classic pirate adventure, Treasure Island.
From the moment young Jim Hawkins stumbles upon a treasure map at the Admiral Benbow Inn he finds himself embroiled in the murky underworld of pirates - and soon he is on the high seas in search of the pirate hoard . But once aboard the Hispaniola, Jim becomes only too aware that he is not the only one who knows of the map's existence.
Bursting with buccaneers, brouhaha and dastardly double dealings Michael Whitmore’s lively new adaptation delivers an action-packed adventure for the whole family.
