A new musical based on the novel by J Meade Falkner

Thursday 19 April – Saturday 5 May

Haunted by the ghost of the marauding pirate, Blackbeard, Moonfleet is a village of intrigue and drama where shadowy smugglers lurk. Against this backdrop, young orphan John Trenchard dreams of Blackbeard’s treasure and the wealth and happiness it could bring.

Set amongst the cliffs, caves and downs of 18th century Dorset, Moonfleet is the story of a young man’s search for adventure and fulfilment. Romance and mystery intertwine in a thrilling tale of moving intensity.

This bold new musical retelling of J Meade Falkner’s classic book brings to life a forgotten world of shipwreck, smugglers and heroism.
