National Theatre at Home: Treasure Island

Streaming on YouTube till 23rd April

Robert Louis Stevenson’s story of murder, money and mutiny brought to life in this thrilling new stage adaptation.

It’s a dark, stormy night. The stars are out. Jim, the inn-keeper’s granddaughter, opens the door to a terrifying stranger. At the old sailor’s feet sits a huge sea-chest, full of secrets. Jim invites him in – and her dangerous voyage begins.
