I am happy to live in London but at times like these, I wish I lived nearer up north. I would absolutely love to take the children to watch Pirate Gran and during half term no less!
Meet Gran. She bakes. She knits. You’d never guess she was a Pirate!
Pirating isn’t the life for everyone, but Gran says if you don’t mind sleeping in a hammock and being called Scary Mary, then it’s a career more girls should think about. With a pet crocodile under her bed, a wicked sense of humour and a whole raft of adventures under her belt, time with Gran is never dull!
Scamp Theatre and Watford Palace Theatre bring the popular children’s books, Pirate Gran by Geraldine Durrant to the stage, following highly acclaimed stage adaptations of Stick Man and Tiddler and other Terrific Tales.
Pirate Gran’s crew will be bought to life by a talented cast with Pauline Goldsmith as Pirate Gran alongside Martyn Dempsey, Jack Maurice and Peta Maurice. There is puppetry designed by Toby Olié, associate puppetry director of the National Theatre’s production of War Horse. Toby was involved in the development of the puppetry for War Horse and was also one of the puppeteers who played Joey the horse on stage.
Pirate Gran is directed by Pieter Lawman with music by Benji Bower, set and lighting design by James Lewis, puppet design by Toby Olié and costume design by Katie Sykes. It is produced by Scamp Theatre and Watford Palace Theatre.
