Treasure Island Media Release
BLOOD, GREED, MURDER AND MUTINY FOR ALL THE FAMILY!
Tues 13 – Sat 17 April
The award-winning Wee Stories present a thrilling version of the greatest pirate story of them all, told by two shipwrecked musicians, clinging to Stevenson’s story to keep body and soul together in the hope of rescue.
This critically acclaimed adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island features inspiring performances and original live music from the combined talents of two of Scotland’s finest creative directors and performers, Andy Cannon and Iain Johnstone.
Our hero Jim Hawkins sets out on one of the most famous adventures in history, as he joins the crew of the Hispaniola in search of pirate treasure.
While snoozing in an apple barrel, his journey takes a turn for the worst when he overhears the infamous plot of mutiny planned by the one-legged ship’s cook, Long John Silver and his parrot, Captain Flint.
With his own life at sake, Jim stands alone in the shadow of the Jolly Roger determined to find the treasure and to save the lives of those honourable men around him.
From the creators of The Emperor’s New Kilt and Arthur, the Story of a King, Treasure Island is swashbuckling and magnetic entertainment for everyone over 8 years old (not for the fainthearted…)
