Fancy running away to sea with a pirate?

Sam does. He’s an ordinary guy who wears ordinary clothes and has an ordinary job. But his mother is a PIRATE! Blimey! One day Sam quits his ordinary life to run off to the sea with his pirate Mum. Travelling by wheelbarrow and kite, their journey is full of surprises, high-jinks and hilarity.

Michael Hurst stars as the Pirate Mother in this brand new adaption of Margaret Mahy’s much loved
children’s classic.

Don’t stay marooned at home these school holidays – join us for a rollicking good time on an adventure to the high seas!

A lively and enchanting tale for children of all ages.
