The Pirate Cruncher

A swashbuckling tale of greed and bravery for all the family.
Overlooking the harbour lies the Thirsty Parrot tavern, run single-handed by plucky and clever seven year old Emily, child inventor extraordinaire. When her tavern is raided by Captain Purplebeard and his dastardly cut-throat crew, Emily determines to take revenge, by sending the pirates on a wild goose chase for treasure. Little do they suspect that their ridiculous quest will lead them straight into the tentacles of the terrifying Pirate Cruncher, a monster who likes nothing better than to devour pirates for lunch!

This rollicking adventure, told through thrilling action, daft nonsense, stirring shanties, and the weirdest of mechanical contraptions, is adapted from the best-selling picture book by Jonny Duddle, winner of the Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize. Exciting, hilarious and comically gruesome, this tale of pirates, monsters and the ingenuity of one small girl is family theatre at its finest and silliest, a treat for children and adults alike.
