A swashbuckling rom-com adventure
Adapted for the stage by Isobel McArthur and MJ McCarthy.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness… and then there’s Davie Balfour.
19-year-old Davie has never left home, never been kissed and never fired a gun. Armed with nothing but a hand-drawn map, he heads off on an adventure like no other – quickly realising that he has a lot of catching up to do…
This riotous re-telling of Robert Louis Stevenson’s adventure novella is jam-packed with 20th century pop music and 18th century romance. Performed by a dynamic ensemble of actor-musicians, Kidnapped is a colourful coming-of-age story - shot-through with Stevenson’s trademark blend of poetry, humour and heart.
Join Davie as he navigates murderous foes, Jacobite outlaws and the most inept crew of pirates this side of the Atlantic on a journey of eye-opening discovery and treasures untold.
From the writer and musical supervisor of the award-winning Pride & Prejudice (sort of) and based on the adventure novel by Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson.
Recommended ages 12+. Contains some strong language. (But you’d swear too if you’d been kidnapped…)
