Leitrim Youth Theatre Company - Treasure Island
Adapted by Phil Willmott
Directed by Catherine Sheridan.
This swashbuckling stage adaptation brings out all the comedy and adventure of this ever-popular story. The effect of Treasure Island on our perception of pirates cannot be overestimated. Stevenson linked pirates forever with maps, black schooners, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen with parrots on their shoulders. The treasure map with an X marking the location of the buried treasure is one of the most familiar pirate props, yet it is entirely a fictional invention which owes its origin to Stevenson’s original map.
