Nearly a decade ago, when they were spritely, agile, supple young whippersnappers, the Sleeping Trees decided to create an adaptation of the swashbuckling classic; Treasure Island. It was once a comic and highly physical re-telling of the story, without any set, sound or props, instead just the boundless energy and enthusiasm of three naive post-pubescent boys. As it’s 2020, one hundred and thirty eight years since the original story was published, the Sleeping Trees have dug this show up from the cold, dry depths of their fading memories and are going to perform it for one night only (across two nights).
