Description

Synopsis:

Henrietta Hawkins and her son Jim, obtain a treasure map courtesy of pirate  Billy Bones. But this lands them in trouble with Long John Silver and his cut-throat pirates. Henrietta and Jim escape and set sail in the Hispaniola to claim the treasure along with Jim’s sweetheart, Maggie Trelawney, Doctor Livesey

Unbeknownst to them, the pirates have managed to get hired as crew, and eventually take over the ship. The story concludes on Treasure Island, where they meet the demented Ben Gunn, a marooned sailor.

This panto follows Robert Louis Stevenson’s timetable of events faithfully, from the Benbow Inn to Bristol docks and then a sea voyage to Treasure Island.

SCENE ONE
THE BENBOW INN

Music cue 1: Serving Girls. After song ends…Exit Serving Girls [SL]

Enter Henrietta [SR]

HENRIETTA: Hello folks! Welcome to The Admiral Benbow! I’m Henrietta Hawkins and I’m a widow. My husband’s ship sank with all hands, leaving me to run this pub with my son Jim. Our customers are mostly pirates, who mostly drink rum. But I’m not making enough money so, I’ve decided to stop selling spirits and sell our own homebrew instead. So, if you hear anybody say, ‘I’ll have a stiff one.’ I want you to shout, ‘not in here you won’t!’ The karaoke’s been cancelled, but if you fancy a singalong, whenever you hear anybody sing ‘fifteen men on a dead man’s chest,’ you can join in and sing ‘yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum’, okay? I’m just off to ring Dr Livesey about a personal matter. See you later! [exits SL]

Enter Jim and Maggie arm-in-arm [SR]

JIM: Your father’s forbidden us to see each other Maggie, just because I’m poor.

MAGGIE: It’s so unfair Jim. Money shouldn’t matter where love is concerned.

JIM: I agree Maggie, but I think he’ll soon be changing his tune very soon.

MAGGIE: Have you won the lottery Jim!?

JIM: No, but I’m hoping to become even richer than a lottery winner.

MAGGIE: But how, Jim?

JIM: I intend going to sea and making my fortune by finding treasure.

MAGGIE: Sunken treasure?

JIM: Sunken, lost, buried, lying about on the ground. Any kind of treasure, really.

MAGGIE: Wouldn’t it be safer trying to find it on dry land Jim?

JIM: Don’t worry Maggie, ships are very safe these days.

MAGGIE: But didn’t your father die at sea?

JIM: Yes, but that was just a freak accident.

MAGGIE: What happened to him?

JIM: His ship sank.

MAGGIE: Doesn’t that happen often Jim?

JIM: No Maggie, ships usually only sink the once.

MAGGIE: Have you ever been to sea before Jim?

JIM: No, but I’m sure I’ll take to it like a fish to water.

MAGGIE: But aren’t you afraid that we might drift apart?

JIM: No Maggie, in the sea of life you’ll always be my anchor.

MAGGIE: And you’ll always find safe a harbour in my port, Jim. Music cue 2: Maggie and Jim. After song ends…I’d better be getting home Jim, or father might come looking for me.

JIM: Okay Maggie, I’ll just walk you to the bus stop.

MAGGIE: You can’t do that, Jim.

JIM: Why not?

MAGGIE: Because busses haven’t been invented yet.

JIM: The coach and horses stop then.

Exit Jim and Maggie [SL]

Enter Henrietta [SR]

HENRIETTA: I thought I heard Jim’s voice just now.

Enter Dr Livesey [SL]

DOCTOR: Good evening Mrs Hawkins.

HENRIETTA: Dr Livesey, how good of you to call at such short notice.

DOCTOR: Well, it sounded quite urgent now, what seems to be the trouble?

HENRIETTA: It’s a bit delicate, Doctor.

DOCTOR: [produces a tube of cream] Take this cream and rub it on the affected area.

HENRIETTA: It’s not that this time Doctor.

DOCTOR: Then what is it?

HENRIETTA: I’m thinking about getting remarried, but I don’t want any more kids. What method of birth control would you recommend?

DOCTOR: In your case, leaving the light on.

HENRIETTA: I’ll put yours out in a minute! [coughs roughly]

DOCTOR: Are you all right Mrs Hawkins?

HENRIETTA: It’s my chest Doctor, it’s terribly rough.

DOCTOR: I can see that.

HENRIETTA: Would you mind having a look at it for me?

DOCTOR: If I must, but I’ll need a drink first.

HENRIETTA: What would you like, Doctor?

DOCTOR: I’ll have a stiff one.

HENRIETTA: [leads audience] Not in here you won’t!

DOCTOR: Hold the drink, I want to get this over with quickly. [stethoscope to her chest] Mmm…ooh…aah!

HENRIETTA: [worried] What is it Doctor Livesey?

DOCTOR: Beg pardon?

HENRIETTA: [shouts into end of stethoscope] What is it!?

DOCTOR: Aaaah! You could’ve done me a nasty injury just then, Mrs Hawkins!

HENRIETTA: There’s still time now, what did you hear?

DOCTOR: It’s a sort of regular, bom-bom…bom-bom…bom-bom.

HENRIETTA: That’s my heart, you fool!

DOCTOR: I’ve always wondered what that sound was. Close your eyes. [she does and he holds a spotted handkerchief in front of her face] What do you see?

HENRIETTA: Nothing.

DOCTOR: Open them again. [she does] Now, what do you see?

HENRIETTA: Spots.

DOCTOR: [shouts] Do you suffer from headaches!?

HENRIETTA: [holding her head] Well, I do now!

DOCTOR: [spins her round] How do you feel Mrs Hawkins?

HENRIETTA: [wavers] Dizzy.

DOCTOR: Spots before the eyes, headaches, and dizziness? It’s just as I suspected.

HENRIETTA: What is it Doctor?

DOCTOR: You’re run down.

HENRIETTA: I knew I’d been working too hard. What do you suggest, Doctor?

DOCTOR: I suggest a long sea voyage. [aside] The longer the better.
