Join Will, his family and a motley crew of pirates in a thrilling new adaptation of Eoin Colfer's novel. Read More >

The Unicorn theatre present a thrilling adaptation of Eoin Colfer’s much loved children’s novel The Legend Of Captain Crow’s Teeth.

Will is nine. And as family holidays go, this one isn’t very promising.  I mean, would you want to spend three weeks in a cramped caravan by the sea with your four brothers?

But this is not an ordinary seaside town. Hundreds of years ago it was terrorised by the legendary Captain Crow, a cut-throat pirate who lured innocent sailors to their certain deaths in search of treasure. Until, that is, he was killed – by a nine year old cabin boy.  Today the fearsome pirate’s spirit still haunts the area and has a particular grievance against nine year old boys. Suddenly Will’s holiday is looking a bit too exciting…

Join Will, his family and a motley crew of pirates in a thrilling new adaptation devised by Matthew Lenton, Artistic Director of Vanishing Point.
