Fye-patches. missing teeth. colourful bandannas. Jolly Rogers. swashbuckling adventures on the high seas and speaking parrots; that's pirates. Isn't it'r’ Their treasure plundering. plank-walking and cutlass Wielding antics are often forgotten in today's more commonplace cutesy images conjured up by the word pirates. Robert Lows Stevenson had none of these romantic notions in his original children's novel. The epic tale of a young cabin boy who sets out onboard the Hispaniola to find buried treasure. but finds hrrnself bound to foil the plans of the murderous Captain

Hook and save the lives of the rest of the crew: Ilris challenging tale is; ltilll‘litiriti wrth suspense. adventure and more than its fair share of blood and guts. and true to form. Wee Stories are attempting to capture the grim essence of

Stevenson's tale in therr stage adaptation.

A mammoth undertaking for most. but one made all the tilt ire .rripressive when you consider there are only two cast members playing all of the characters (to writer. director and star of the play Andy Cannon explains that breaking the t’.li ip,

down into a series of double acts made the task easier: "()i r‘.’iotit;l‘.'

you've got

Silver and his parrot: that was the most obvious one. but actually it's more {lltl rut .Jim Hawkins and Silver and their story. That was our starting point and rt was

guite taxrng working all that out."

Their adaptation begins on a desert island where two men have been stranded With nothing except bananas. chariipagne, boxes and a copy of f/i)i'l.‘5t/r'l.’ Island to keep them company. The adventure unfolds as the rrrerr become so caught up in the novel that they begrrr to act it out. taking on each of the personas.

Divulging the story in an entertaining and thoughtprovoking way is the aim. and according to Cannon. respt—zcting Stevenson's work is pararrrount: ‘I'm very keen that children know that it is a book that is being adapted. and for me. one of the ideal things would be after seeing our 'l‘reasirre lslarrd. children would want to read it or have someone read it to them.‘ (Maureen I Ilrsi
