Treasure Island Flyer

 

 

Yohoho, and a bottle of rum!

When youngster Jim Hawkins finds a clue to the legacy of the pirate Captain Flint in a dead man's chest he unwittingly sets a tumultuous treasure hunt in motion that attracts a cast of wild and colourful characters. At the center of R.L. Stevenson's iconic story about greed, honour, duty, mutiny, fear and courage, Jim finds himself up against the infamous Long John Silver, a study of good and evil with ever-shifting loyalties. As the tides of fortune turn between the steadfast crew and the increasingly desperate mutineers, Jim's reckless audacity may be the only thing that can save his friends from being marooned on Treasure Island.

The 39 Steps Poster

 

Richard Hannay, approximately thirty-seven, six foot one with a very attractive pencil moustache, is a wanted man. Pursued by the police and hunted by foreign spies he still finds time to fall in love….three times! With mysterious murders and daring escapes, car chases and plane crashes our hero leads us through 1930s Britain on a whirlwind adventure to discover the meaning of "The 39 Steps". Accompanying him are a cast of countless characters who help, hinder and seduce him on his hilarious journey. This rip-roaring adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 film noir classic is ingeniously brought to life as a fast-paced comedy thriller you won’t soon forget. Crikey!
