Arthur Ransome's famous and much-loved children's classic is brought thrillingly to life in Helen Edmundson's wonderfully theatrical adaptation, with &amp;#145;delightfully catchy and often witty' (<i>Telegraph</i>) songs by Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy.

When John, Susan, Titty and Roger are granted their wish to set sail on their beloved boat <i>Swallow</i>, they know it will be the summer holiday of a lifetime.

But their adventure truly begins when they encounter Nancy and Peggy, the self-proclaimed Amazon Pirates, and the dastardly Captain Flint.
