Touring the UK 2019: The Pirate Cruncher by Goat and Monkey
WORTHING – Adapted from the best-selling book by Jonny Duddle, with music and songs by multi award winning folk musician Jon Boden, get ready for a rollicking adventure, with The Pirate Cruncher, told through thrilling action, daft nonsense, stirring shanties, the weirdest of mechanical contraptions and a healthy dose of good old-fashioned audience involvement.
Overlooking the harbour lies the Thirsty Parrot tavern, run single-handedly by plucky and clever seven year old Emily (Martha Seignior), child inventor extraordinaire. When her tavern is raided by Captain Purplebeard and his dastardly cut-throat crew, Emily determines to take revenge, by sending the pirates on a wild goose chase for treasure. Little do they suspect that their ridiculous quest will lead them straight into the tentacles of the terrifying Pirate Cruncher, a monster who likes nothing better than to devour pirates for lunch!
Says director Joel Scott: “We’ve read all of Jonny Duddle’s fantastic books to our children – stories of heroism, adventure and imagination and can’t wait to bring The Pirate Cruncher alive on stage. We’ve assembled an incredible creative team, cast an array of wonderful and piratical actors and created a beautiful range of songs – everything is ship-shape to set sail in September.”
Crimes on the Coast tours from 21st September 2019 at Connaught Theatre, Worthing, the Merlin Theatre, and ends its tour at The Old Market, Brighton in November. For more information, visit their website here
