Bold, boisterous and bags of fun, Captain Blood’s Revenge combines adventure, mystery and a bit of spookiness in a tale of buccaneering high jinks that we can all join in.

As if Salty Sue doesn’t have enough to cope with as landlady of The Blasted Bilge Rat, a rowdy harbourside inn, her daughter Pegatty is a real piratical handful and Pegatty’s father, the fearsome former pirate Billy Bone, has vanished on a dangerous quest. No wonder Sue would rather swap the high seas for the high Cs in her secret ambition to be a singer. The rollicking regulars at Sue’s inn include a band of mariner musicians, an evil-looking sailor with a knife in his back – and us, the audience.

Music by Lynne Plowman

Libretto by Martin Riley
