In this version of Treasure Island, Jim Hawkins and his widowed mother run an old inn in Western England. One foggy morning, a pirate on the run ends up at the inn, befriending Jim and pressing into the lad’s hand a tattered, old, wrinkled, and torn piece of paper. Suddenly, a band of cut-throat pirates show up at the inn, feverishly searching for what Jim’s been given! With the help of his town’s squire, Jim realizes he’s been given a secret map to a buried treasure of gold and silver. On board the Hispaniola, Jim learns that the crew they hired are not sailors but pirates captained by peg-legged Long John Silver. But Long John Silver and his treasure-stealing pirates are in for an immense surprise! The treasure they think they’ve found has been stolen by a half-crazed, hilarious hermit. A breathtaking tale told by two hilarious narrators who, at times, become part of the play’s fast-moving action!
