The Legend of Captain Crow's Teeth

A Unicorn production

A FAMILY HOLIDAY TO THE SEASIDE, WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?

  • Based on the book by Eoin Colfer
  • Directed by Matthew Lenton

Will is nine. And as family holidays go, this one isn’t very promising.  I mean, would you want to spend three weeks in a cramped caravan by the sea with your four brothers?

But this is not an ordinary seaside town. Hundreds of years ago it was terrorised by the legendary Captain Crow, a cut-throat pirate who lured innocent sailors to their certain deaths in search of treasure. Until, that is, he was killed – by a nine year old cabin boy.  Today the fearsome pirate’s spirit still haunts the area and has a particular grievance against nine year old boys. Suddenly Will’s holiday is looking a bit too exciting…
