Directed by Mike Shepherd
For adults and older children (11+) Running time: 1hr 30mins
We are in Cornwall in the 18th century.
There are taxes on everything. Smuggling is rife and courage, fortitude and brandy unite a desperate community.
Meet the Carter brothers. John Carter is The King of Prussia, the most notorious free trader of them all. Harry Carter is in prison in France. Eddie Carter’s got lobster fever, and the business is broke – the Cawsand job must go ahead.
John Carter ruled his kingdom absolutely, until one day he met his match: Susan Stackhouse - as rich as a queen, as beautiful as a sirens song and as cruel as a Spaniard.
Revived with (almost all of!) the original cast from the 1996 sellout run at The Donmar Warehouse, Nick Darke’s seminal text feels intoxicatingly fresh and even more relevant than the day it was written!
