Murder, money and mutiny!

Previewed by Maggie Holland | director

Bryony Lavery's thrilling adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's story of murder, money and mutiny!

It's a dark and stormy night.

Jim, the inn-keeper's granddaughter, opens the door to a terrifying stranger. At the old sailor's feet sits a huge sea-chest full of secrets.

Jim invites him in, and her dangerous voyage begins.

'Macabre but comic'

Most people have a rough idea about Treasure Island even if they don't know the details. Bryony Lavery's version retains most of the macabre (and quite violent) elements but mixes it with comedy.

After several horrible visitors come to the Inn, Jim gathers friends to follow up on the treasure map found. They charter a ship crewed by some very dodgy types. That's the start of the adventure…

Masque Theatre's production is directed by Maggie Holland, whose shows for the group include Woman In Mind (2018), Entertaining Angels (2015) and Closer (2009).
