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.
