Argh, me hearties! Come join Jim Hawkins on his journey into the murky underworld of pirates and buried treasure in Quantum Theatre’s lively adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel, Treasure Island.

Pack a picnic and something to sit on to make yourselves comfortable in the grounds of Oystermouth Castle for an afternoon of lively family entertainment on Thursday 12 August 2021.


We catch up with young Hawkins after his life is turned upside down when old sailors Billy Bones and Black Dog confront each other at his father’s inn, the Admiral Benbow.

Armed with a map of an island on which legendary pirate Captain Flint buried his treasure, Hawkins sets sail on the Hispaniola in search of the pirate hoard. However, once aboard the Hispaniola, Jim becomes very aware that he is not the only one who knows of the map’s existence…

Adapted for the outdoor stage with plenty of buccaneers, brouhaha and dastardly double-dealings, Michael Whitmore’s new interpretation of the classic tale is bursting with energy that delivers an action-packed adventure for the whole family.
