‘A dark night. The roar of the waves. A ship in peril. And figures on the shore… watching… waiting.’
Nothing ever seems to happen in John Trenchard’s sleepy coastal village until the night he stumbles upon a terrible secret.
Plunged into a world of adventure and mayhem - of smugglers and excisemen, storms and shipwrecks, fortunes made and lost - John must leave the safety of
his home far behind.
Along with his fierce leader and friend, the smuggler Elzevir, John sets out on his most dangerous journey yet, to recover the lost diamond of the legendary Blackbeard Mohune. But all that glitters is not gold, and their quest has the potential to disturb ghosts that have lain in an uneasy peace for centuries…
Dark, thrilling and mysterious, Moonfleet is a classic adventure yarn, boldly reimagined for The Senior Youth Theatre.
