The Biggest Adventure in the World

The Biggest Adventure in the World (Photo: Dylan Vaughan)

Jonty has moved to a new area. His parents are overprotective and confine him to the back garden. When Mickser comes over the wall en route to a fair, Jonty gets the whiff of adventure. At the fair the boys meet Nadia, who is also there without permission. The three adventurers go treasure-hunting on a half sunken boat but when they find the remains of Captain Flint, things get hairy!

That’s the trouble with adventures; they often turn out to be darker and more dangerous than you ever expected and when Jonty is accidentally stabbed in a crocodile incident, Mickser and Nadia have difficult choices to make…

A play for children aged 8 -12 years.

Running time approx 80 minutes.
