Treasure Island

It’s a dark, stormy night. The stars are out. Jim, the inn-keeper’s granddaughter, opens the door to a terrifying stranger. At the old sailor’s feet sits a huge sea-chest, full of secrets. Jim invites him in – and her dangerous voyage begins.

This winter, Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island, a story of murder, money and mutiny, is brought to life on the Olivier stage in a thrilling new adaptation by Bryony Lavery.

Not one of us must breathe a word of what we’ve found...
