Captain Jake returns to Pleasance with another tale of daring piratical dos. Hear how Jake ended up in prison after a disastrous raid, before he escaped with the help of the infamous Mary Reed and her crew, only to fall out and be left on the famous Forbidden Island. When no one shows up to rescue him, he set off upon an adventure. Fighting strange and beguiling monsters, trying to communicate with seagulls and trying his hand at ship building. This hysterical historical interactive adventure is perfect for all lively pirates and their adults.
