Treasure Island


Creation Theatre's touring company will be delivering Robert Louis Stevenson's 1883 classic Treasure Island. Treasure Island  is brought to life with theatrical magic on the beautiful South Lawn of Wycliffe Hall.

Whilst retaining the narrative of Stevenson's classic, with depth, integrity, a dash of thriller and a large amount of silliness, Gari Jones' adaptation zips along like a wacky race brimming with pirate speak, off-the-wall characters and a whole heap of original sea shanties. Treasure Island will be performed on the beautiful lawn in front of Wycliffe Hall, as well as on tour in Oxfordshire and beyond.

As You Like It

  24 Jul - 17 Aug
