About this event

This summer, set sail on a swashbuckling adventure packed full of pirates, bottles of rum and pieces of eight, with R L Stevenson’s tale of money, murder and mutiny.

Tuesday 17th to Saturday 21st July, 7.30pm, plus matinee performance on Saturday 21st July at 2.30pm

Advance booking closes one hour before the start time, and tickets will then be available in person at the door.

The production retains all the adventures and excitements of Robert Louis Stevenson’s timeless classic and includes the disreputable characters: Long John Silver, Billy Bones, Blind Pew, and Black Dog.

When young Jim Hawkins discovers Captain Flint’s treasure map, it leads him and a rather motley crew of pirates to where Flint’s long-lost treasure awaits discovery.

Aboard the Hispaniola with Captain Smollett, Squire Trelawney and Doctor Livesey they set sail for a far away tropical island. But in a plot full of mutiny and mayhem Jim is befriended by the notorious Long John Silver and needs the help of castaway Ben Gunn to help him retrieve the treasure.

Using traditional sea shanties to keep the production rollicking along Stevenson’s story is adapted and directed by Richard Clark.

About us

The Dartington Experiment began over 90 years ago when our founders, Dorothy and Leonard Elmhirst, set out to build a community inspired by the idea of a ‘many-sided life’.

Today, we believe that their vision is more relevant today than ever before. We aim to be a place where people can realise their individual and collective potential, and are given a chance to connect with themselves, each other, and the environment.

Across the estate, a programme of events and visitor attractions operate year-round; artists, makers, farmers, educators, craftspeople and entrepreneurs live and work; and the community continues to ‘learn by doing’, finding inspiration in the Elmhirst’s progressive ideas and experimental approach.
