Treasure Island will be streamed online!
Le Navet Bete’s version of Treasure Island at the Northcott Theatre was one of the few productions nation-wide able to play to a live socially-distanced audience over the Christmas period. With standing ovations and rapturous applause, audiences praised the show for offering much-needed laughter and some escapism after a difficult year. Unfortunately, when Devon was placed into Tier 3, the run was cut short. But not before it was filmed and made ready for global online release through a trailblazing partnership with Creative Industries Federation.
