Description

Hoist the mainsails and prepare for a thoroughly ridiculous adventure. Blackbeard meets Blackadder with villainous accents, absurdly catchy songs, disguises, intrepid damsels, captains in distress... wait, is that right? The pirates are determined to defeat the stuffy Royal Navy, find the lost Infanta of Spain and buckle every swash in sight. Meanwhile, hapless Captain Trumpeter and his bold (if slightly soprano) first officer are far more concerned about a visiting admiral and his beautiful daughter. Oh well, splice the mainbrace! 'An uproarious hour of nautical naughtiness' (FringeReview.co.uk). 'A real treat' (DailyInfo.co.uk).

What a heartwarming show ! Fab singing ! And the most magnificently hilarious Spanish don played by Alice Pilkington! Brilliant character acting!

A great start to my day. An amazing mix of characters running thru the play with snippets of Python as well as Flashadder!
Loved the show and the great depth of singing actors (it seemed they could ALL sing!).
A swashbuckling epic that would go down well as a great xmas panto.....any day of the year.

Wow - totally amazing! Loved the rework of tragedy into piracy - and the rums all gone and you can’t go on it’s hard to bear - bee gees and steps you’d be proud!
Admiral flash nobbe, pirate king and the Spanish don- you totally rocked it!
Fab show for all - something for every age from toddler on....
Loved it
