"It's a story of adventure," he says. "It's a story of pirates and buccaneers and sword fights and sea shanties. You can never have enough sea shanties in one day as far as I'm concerned."

The play follows a boy named Jim Hawkins. He befriends a pirate named Billy Bones, who happens to have a treasure map. The map supposedly leads to a treasure that was hidden long ago by Captain Flint. During their journey, they meet Mr. Silver, who 'helps' them on their quest for the treasure.

"I put together a crew of sailors (pirates) who might or might not want to take the treasure from them (Hawkins and Bones)," Silver says.
