Treasure Island (Hulse)
The story of Long John Silver and his pirate crew spill from the spirited imagination of a young girl. Emily dreams of being a pirate, although wanting to be a businesswoman would be more sensible. Her dream comes to life in this version of Stevenson’s classic tale, where she is Jim Hawkins in the story of wicked pirates, good old English pluck and buried treasure.

Toby Hulse, playwright
