Hispaniola!

HISPANIOLA! is a pared-down, high-energy adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, which integrates professional actors with children and a guest narrator. A live battle on high seas and faraway shores - for order or anarchy, and possession of the treasure.

This is theatre for a family audience, done the Volcano way - with dynamic staging, physical vigour and audacious interaction. A rugged, minimalist moving ship’s deck and rope rigging forms the centrepiece of the action. Featuring stockades, shoot-outs, sweets, slapstick and skulduggery.

Available for touring from Autumn 2020. Opportunities for participation with local youth theatres and other groups.
