“Dive into another world this Christmas...there's treasure to be found!”
It's Christmas Eve in The Admiral Benbow. Fourteen year old lad Jim Hawkins is serving ale to the one and only customer the pub ever has. Suddenly the door slams open and in strides Billy Bones, the infamous pirate, to change Jim's life forever...
Teaming up once again with Barbican Theatre, Plymouth favourites Le Navet Bete return to the city for their 9th Christmas production, following their recent smash hits The Three Musketeers, Aladdin and Dracula: The Bloody Truth. Treasure Island is their brand new comedy theatre show for all the family; a hilarious, rip-roaring adventure encountering swashbuckling pirates, tropical islands and high seas. Join the four lads from Le Navet Bete as they play out the epic adventure of Treasure Island as you've NEVER seen it before. Set sail with Long John Silver and some other characters you may not expect and prepare for a belly laughing journey to the Caribbean and back.
X will mark the spot this Christmas!
