CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
Other spaces: Weston Theatre, River Theatre, John Lyon Room, The Foyer, Foyle Studio
T472831709 Based on the book by Eoin Colfer. Will is nine. And as family holidays go, this one isn't very promising. I mean, would you want to spend three weeks in a cramped caravan by the sea with your four brothers? But this is not an ordinary seaside town. Hundreds of years ago it was terrorised by the legendary Captain Crow, a cut-throat pirate who lured innocent sailors to their certain deaths in search of treasure. Until, that is, he was killed - by a nine year old cabin boy. Today the fearsome pirate's spirit still haunts the area and has a particular grievance against nine year old boys. Suddenly Will's holiday is looking a bit too exciting... Join Will, his family and a motley crew of pirates in a thrilling new adaptation devised by Matthew Lenton, Artistic Director of Vanishing Point.
