Original music composed and played by Brian Swaddling. It’s a dark, stormy night. The stars are out. Jim, the Inn keeper’s granddaughter opens the door to a mob of terrifying strangers – and her dangerous voyage begins! Get ready to walk the plank, sail the high seas and embark on the adventure of a lifetime. Phil Willmott’s adaptation of this classic novel is a delightfully funny and action- packed story that will have you on the edge of your seat whilst roaring with laughter. Filled with Piratical exploits, buried treasure and swashbuckling derring - it’s the story of Miss Jim Hawkins, a 16 year old girl who longs for adventure; and the infamous Long John Silver – a complex study of good and evil - perhaps the most famous hero-villain of all time. He is an unscrupulous buccaneer rogue whose greedy quest for gold, coupled with his genuine affection for Jim, cannot help but win the soul of every boy, girl or adult who has ever longed for romance, treasure and adventure………….
“A wonderfully imaginative adaptation that keeps alive the wit and excitement of the classic novel” The Guardian
