Can the crew be trusted? Just who is Long John Silver and what awaits them all at the famed ‘Treasure Island?’

Exploring the complex themes of family, loss and greed, the AYC bring will bring to the stage an all-new adaptation of Robert Louis-Stevenson’s legendary tale of self-discovery, betrayal and pirates.
