Packing pirates from Long John Silver to Jack Sparrow into one madcap hour. After a sell-out fringe premiere in 2008, this swashbuckling piratical adventure returns for a second year of timber-shivering and plank-walking.

Created by CBBC and Potted Potter’s Dan and Jeff, the show's back with all-new shipmates in search of talking parrots and mysterious buried treasure. On the way they’ll be telling tall tales of the seven seas – and be sure not to miss the full-scale Spanish Armada re-enactment.

Recommended for everyone aged 6+ - even those who don’t know their skull and crossbones from their pieces of eight.

'The schtick is practised, the jokes fast and furious. A great swashbuckling trip.'
The Herald

'The talented duo cover most facets of pirate pop culture, and in doing so, spin a genuinely funny farce for kids both big and small.'
The List

'Genuinely funny farce.'
The Scotsman
