At Olivier Theatre, National
This winter, Robert Louis Stevenson's story of murder, money and mutiny is brought to life on the Olivier stage in the thrilling new adaptation by Bryony Lavery. Not one of us must breathe a word of what we've found....
It's a dark, stormy night. The stars are out. 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.
Treasure Island Reviews
"Hit Ahoy! With a rousing roar of Yo-ho-ho, this festive treat is one to treasure. A racy, pacy adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's swashbuckling classic. A gripping yarn with a buccaneering spirit, it flies the flag for good old fashioned storytelling"
"'A skilful, impressive production - here comes the season's first posh pantomime. Technically the show is delightful with ropes and rigging, caves, crevices and coastline, loud bangs and terrific fights. It's a tough-old tale with a heart of gold"
"Keith Allen shivers our timbers as Long John Silver and is perfect for the part charging every scene with a growling charisma"
