Long John Silver sets sail for Derby for Easter


For the second successive year, Derby Theatre is producing a major show featuring fully integrated British Sign Language and captioning.

In 2019, the theatre presented Neil Duffield’s adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book; in 2020 Treasure Island will get similar treatment.

Steve Orme chats to Derby Theatre’s artistic director Sarah Brigham about the show and what the theatre is doing regarding the coronavirus outbreak.

He also interviews Beth Hinton-Lever who plays Long John Silver and T J Holmes, taking the role of Israel Hands.

UPDATE: because of the coronavirus outbreak, Treasure Island has been cancelled.
