Experience the dreaded BLACK spot, sword fights, friendship, betrayal and everything PIRATE! Enjoy the adventure story about an innkeeper’s son, Jim Hawkins, in the 1700s, who gets caught up with pirates and a search for buried treasure. Treasure Island’s influence has been enormous on the popular perceptions of pirates, including such elements as treasure maps marked with an ‘X’, tropical islands and one-legged seamen bearing parrots on their shoulder.
Ken Ludwig’s adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island premiered at the Alley Theatre in Houston, TX in April, 2007 .
