A smash-hit comedy play will be making its way to Seaton Delaval this month.

With two actors playing 44 characters, Captain Morgan and the Sands of Time is a comedy play for all the family, showcasing its swashbuckling adventures in partnership with Seaton Delaval Arts Centre and Highlights Rural Touring Scheme.

Captain Morgan and First Mate Hammond are on a quest for the secrets of time travel in a rip-roaring adventure comedy. All the monsters, sword fights and shivered timbers you would expect from a blockbuster will be delivered by two actors and one multi-instrumentalist.

Using nothing but their bodies to conjure objects and set, Morgan and Hammond must slay monsters, battle sea gods and outwit the dastardly privateer Renshaw to claim the ultimate prize – the Sands of Time.

Funny and clever, the show is described as a Pirates of the Caribbean-esque masterpiece of imagination, awash with madcap antics and maritime mayhem.

The show is written and directed by Tap Tap’s Ben Behrens, and enjoyed huge success at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

It takes place on Sunday, April 17, at 7pm. Tickets cost £8, £7 concession, £6 child, £26 family, on 0191 237 5460.
