L. Don Swartz sticks to the heart of the novel, capturing on stage all the drama and excitement of this beloved classic by Robert Louis Stevenson.  When an old drunken pirate, Billy Bones takes up residence at the Admiral Bow Inn, a rowdy seaside tavern frequented by pirates, sea hags and thieves, Jim Hawkins the inn keeper’s young son, gains the key to a chest that holds the map to buried treasure. Dr. Livesey, a family friend, helps Jim gain the support of Madame Trelawney, a wealthy widow who agrees to finance the voyage to recover the treasure. Hawkins, Dr. Livesey, Madame Trelawney, her servant Mr. Redruth and Captain Smollett set sail on their ship, the Hispaniola unaware that Long John Silver himself has joined the crew as a ship’s mate.  He and a gnarly band of pirates also posing as legitimate crew conspire to take over the ship, kill its rightful passengers and steal the treasure.  $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.  Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
