Shiver me timbers! Join us on the adventure of a lifetime…

On a stormy beach at Withernsea young Jem Hawkins and her Uncle David discover a treasure map. With the help of Long John Silver and his band of pirates they set sail in search of gold, but are betrayed before they reach the islands of the frozen north.

Jem must find her courage to escape the treacherous crew, survive the storms and find the treasure. Will she make it home again, or join the marooned Ben Gunn on the island forever?

With original songs and music, this new adaptation is a festive treat for all the family. Full of sparkling characters, this classic tale is reimagined by award-winning writer Debbie Oates (Coronation Street, The Mill) and delivered with Hull Truck Theatre’s unique brand of Christmas magic!

Friday 16 December, 7pm: Audio described performance 
Friday 16 December, 6pm - 6.35pm: Touch tour for visually impaired patrons

Artistic Director Mark Babych says:

“Hull Truck Theatre Christmas shows are all about providing magical adventures in storytelling that all the family can enjoy. Highly visual, with great original music, our team creates that extra special bit of Hull Truck magic to bring familiar and wondrous stories to life in the intimate, welcoming surroundings of our beautiful theatre. Debbie Oates has created a sparkling new version of a great tale.”
