Jim Hawkins and his mother are happy running the Admiral Benbow Inn until the arrival of an old sea dog in Treasure Island which is at the Kings Theatre, Southsea, on Wednesday.
They barely escape with their lives when pirates arrive in search of Billy Bones’s papers, which Jim manages to keep hold of. The packet contains a map showing the location of the pirates’ buried treasure, and Jim and Doctor Livesey are determined to find it.
Performed by the Blue Orange Theatre Company, the production follows Jim and his friends as they hire a crew and fit out a ship to head off on their adventures.
Tickets: £11.50 to £13.50 from the Kings Theatre, Southsea, on (023) 9282 8282 or go to kings-southsea.com.
