A quiet afternoon in a seaside hotel. In walks a grumpy old pirate, dragging a sea chest. A pirate in the 21st century? Yes, you'd better believe it. Billy Bones says he needs to charter a ship and sail off to Treasure Island with his bloodthirsty crew. Is this for real? Can Jemima, our teenage hero, trust these ruffians … are they actual pirates or just a load of silly men pretending? Can our audience spot the danger before Jemima does? Why do the pirates keep going on about girls on a ship bringing bad luck? Why do they only eat onions and potatoes? Is the useless captain going to wreck the ship before they get to the island? Is there any actual treasure? Well, X marks the spot …. or does it?
