Not Treasure Island:
Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel is subjected to a dose of distorted admiration.
The show tracks the conflicting expeditions of Billy Bones and Long John Silver, two thieving veterans of the sea, as well as young cabin boy Jim. As Jim tries to fulfil his life long dream of becoming a pirate, he manages to get himself caught up in a world inhabited mermen, various talking sea creatures and pirates with severe personality disorders. With only themselves for company, Sleeping Trees bring together a version of the story the likes of which has never been seen before, even by the most ravaged of salt stained peepers.
The show tracks the journey of self obsessed Greek idol, Odysseus, as he tries to battle his way back from Troy, as well as beloved author Homer, after he is kidnapped and held hostage by Lord of the underworld, Hades.
Join the company in their final decimation of a well loved classic, as they battle their way through vengeful gods, a lamb hungry Cyclops and over forty other less important characters.
