Join Exeter’s favourite funny men Le Navet Bete for a swashbuckling family comedy to say goodbye to 2020!
It’s Christmas Eve in The Spyglass Tavern and Jim Hawkins is serving ale to the one and only customer the pub ever has. Suddenly the door slams open and in strides Billy Bones, the infamous pirate, to change Jim’s life forever…
Featuring swashbuckling pirates, tropical islands and a mermaid you will never forget, set sail on the Jolly Todger with Jim Lad, Long John Silver and a whole host of other characters as they make their way to the Caribbean to seek out a bounty of illusive treasure. But will they get there in one piece and is everyone really who they say they are?
This festive season join award-winning funny men Le Navet Bete (The Three Musketeers: A Comedy Adventure, Dracula: The Bloody Truth) as they play out Robert Louis Stevenson’s legendary tale as you’ve NEVER seen it before.
Treasure Island was performed at the Northcott Theatre to a socially distanced audience. Playing to rapturous applause and standing ovations, the run was cut short due to a tightening of lockdown restrictions.
We feel it is more important than ever to bring laughter and escapism to people’s lives and we hope you enjoy this digital version. If you can, please donate to help support the theatre and the company at this challenging time.
The Northcott Theatre is a registered charity staging events and delivering a broad range of creative opportunities for artists and young people. Le Navet Bete is a much-loved touring theatre company.
Access to this show for free but we are suggesting a donation of £10. Any amount – big or small – will be hugely appreciated!
“Lovingly crafted seasonal silliness”
Batten down the hatches for barrels of laugh-out-loud hilarity!
