Pirates: You Wouldn't Steal A Boat



#FindYour Funny, Weird, Story, Talent

The High Seas, 1705. The Golden Age of Piracy.

After being betrayed by his captain, Sharkbait Mulligan finds himself with just the clothes on his chest and the rum on his chest. Backed into a corner, he teams up with new first mate Louie to hunt for revenge, gold and bootleg DVDs.

So. Here’s the plan. Our plucky hero will assemble a crew, crank up the sea shanty radio and prepare for one last score. Little does he know that his old captain is hunting for the same prize...

Spruce Moose Comedy: a group of ex-Cambridge Footlights regulars with a high-energy, low-brow style – bring you their brand-new pirate voyage.

The members’ previous Edinburgh Fringe experience includes Pearly Gates (2022) and the sell-out Doctor Whom (2021), and numerous other productions including Identity Crisis (2020), What’s Wrong With Me (2020) and a sell-out run of Riddikulus – A Magical Sketch Show (2020).

The production will make creative use of props, costumes and lighting for frequent visual humour, whilst a tight multi-roling cast plays on familiar pirate tropes: walking the plank, copious rum and a good ol’ fashioned marooning.

As recommended by the Londonist.
