Drama Academy Open Air Theatre

Friday 5 June

The BTC Drama Academy return with Arthur Ransome's famous and much-loved children's classic, Swallows and Amazons. The story is brought thrillingly to life in Helen Edmundson's wonderfully theatrical adaptation, with 'delightfully catchy and often witty' (Telegraph) songs by Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy

When John, Susan, Titty and Roger are granted their wish to set sail on their beloved boat Swallow, they know it will be the summer holiday of a lifetime. But their adventure truly begins when they encounter Nancy and Peggy, the self-proclaimed Amazon Pirates, and the dastardly Captain Flint.

This adaptation was first performed at the Bristol Old Vic in 2010. It had its West End premiere in 2011.

Please feel free to bring a picnic and make an evening of it.
