A fresh and genuinely thrilling adaptation of the classic tale, and one that keeps close to Stevenson’s original story.
When young Jim Hawkins is left a treasure map by the dying buccaneer Billy Bones, he sets sail on the Hispaniola in search of the island. Among the crew, the one-legged Long John Silver becomes his greatest friend – but Silver has a shocking secret in store, and when they reach their destination, Jim faces danger and adventure greater than he could ever have imagined.
Stuart Paterson’s adaptation of RL Stevenson’s Treasure Island was first performed by Birmingham Stage Company at Birmingham Old Rep in 2007, followed by a UK tour.
This edition of the script includes production notes with ideas for casting and staging the play. Suitable for young people to watch and perform.
