About Treasure Island

PART OF OUR FRINGE FESTIVAL PROGRAMME, OUTDOORS AT MUSSELBURGH RACECOURSE (PARADE RING)

It's pirate ships and salty old sea dogs in Quantum Theatre's swashbuckling new adaption of the classic pirate adventure, Treasure Island.

From the moment young Jim Hawkins stumbles upon a treasure map at the Admiral Benbow Inn he finds himself embroiled in the murky underworld of pirates - and soon he is on the high seas in search of the pirate hoard. But once aboard the Hispaniola, Jim becomes only too aware that he is not the only one who knows of the map's existence..

Bursting with buccaneers, brouhaha and dastardly double dealings this is an action-packed adventure for the whole family.

Bring your own rug or low backed chairs to sit on and if you like, a picnic and soft drinks (no alcohol). Please dress for the weather.

All events are presented in line with Scottish Government guidance.
