PROFESSIONAL Theatre Company , Rain or Shine, is promising a swashbuckling treat at Witley Court.

There will be an open-air performance of the pirate adventure, Treasure Island on Saturday, August 30, from 7.30pm, and audiences are being advised to bring seating or rugs for an al fresco treat for all ages.

Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story is brought to theatrical life in a new adaptation by James Reynard.

Mr Reynard, who also directs the play, says “This tale of buccaneers, greed, courage, betrayal and pieces of eight has both humour and brutality. My adaptation is very much an adult production which can also be enjoyed by children and is an ideal choice for an outdoor family theatrical event”.
