Treasure Island: a swashbucking family comedy for Christmas…

It’s Christmas Eve in The Spyglass Tavern, a pub sat upon the rugged cliffs of the South West. The old landlord Jim Hawkins is hosting a busy Christmas Eve when people start asking him about his rumoured past; can he tell them what really happened? No he can’t – he’s got 23 roast dinners to prepare for Christmas Day! But after a few ales he starts to recount the tale of Treasure Island, using only the pub and it’s clientele to tell the tale of the greatest pirate adventure ever written…

Le Navet Bete and Barbican Theatre return to Plymouth for their 9th Christmas, following their recent smash hit Christmas productions of A Christmas Carol (2017) and Aladdin (2018). Treasure Island is their brand new comedy theatre show for all the family. This will be a hilarious rip-roaring adventure encountering tropical islands and high seas. Join the four ‘idiots’ from Le Navet Bete as they play a hundred pirates and more! X will definitely mark the spot this Christmas!
