Production images for Treasure Island, our swashbuckling winter show and co-production with Visible Fictions, are released today. Take a sneak peek before our first public show tomorrow!
Treasure Island is a brand-new show bursting with sea shanties, treasures, and a sumptuous amount of adventure.
Local lad Robbie Stevenson prefers to hide away from the world inside the pages of his favourite book, Treasure Island. But with a little bit of imagination, the book comes to life, and he is thrust aboard. Robbie soon finds that you can’t stay hiding forever when he must learn to navigate his own course, and to discover the world is full of treasure, if you’re brave enough to look.
This swash-buckling, fun-packed show invites you to embark on a global journey along the Forth and Clyde canal and into the vast ocean. Children and grown-ups alike will be bound out of the theatre with adventure on the high seas.
Written by award-winning writer, Ross MacKay, this show is inspired by the classic tale by Robert Louis Stevenson.
