THE MAN WHOSE MOTHER WAS A PIRATE   
By Paula Wing, adapted from the book by Margaret Mahy

Touring Production  
Performances Run April–June

Sam was an ordinary person who wore an ordinary suit and ordinary shoes. He worked in a neat office writing down figures all day. But Sam’s mother was a PIRATE! In this engaging story the pirate mama drags her happy, numbers-obsessed, accountant son on a voyage to sail the fourteen seas. Along the way, they encounter people who also pine to set sail, but cannot summon the courage to follow. Ultimately, it’s a lively and enchanting tale about knowing who you are, where you belong, and why a break from routine can be a good idea.
