Quest for Treasure Island, The

FARCE. Don’t ye believe all ye hear, maties, as most of it be “fake news.” Long John Silver is here to tell ye the real news, the true story of Treasure Island, in which he is a “reformed pirate,” not a villain. When Jim Hawkins buys a treasure map on Craigslist, Long John Silver is eager to set sail to find the buried treasure. He hires two “experienced” sailors who use “alternative facts” and some lady pirates who auditioned to be Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleaders but didn’t make the cut. The ship’s captain can’t remember names, and the second mate isn’t good with common expressions, sayings, or idioms. There’s bluster, boasting, unburied treasure, a pizza-ordering castaway, and plenty of laughs in this fun show!
