The summer, Bristol Old Vic is taking to the cobbles to King Street to present the world's greatest pirate adventure, Treasure Island.
Following our smash hit Swallows and Amazons, we invite you to join Long John Silver and Jim Hawkins as they set sail on the high seas in search of Captain Flint's buried treasure. Will they be handed the black spot or will they find the golden loot?
Directed by Sally Cookson (Boing! How Cold My Toes, Aesop's Fables, Ali Baba) Treasure Island will be performed in a specially designed open air theatre directly outside Bristol Old Vic, in the city that gave Robert Louis Stevenson inspiration for the story.
Prepare to be whisked away on a seafaring adventure to exotic and perilous desert islands. Leave your cutlass at the door, hoist the Jolly Roger and set sail with us on the rip-roaring voyage of discovery.
