True Pirates Never Die

Gaiety School

The Gaiety School of Acting

26 Jun – 1 Jul | 7:30pm | Main Space

How far would you go for eternal life?

A notorious pirate ship has been lost at sea, and the surviving members of the crew wash up on a mysterious island. But more than the crew has washed ashore; there’s also the pirate captain’s stolen treasure, which will bring much more than worldly wealth.

A pitch-black comic tale of swashbuckling adventure.

When the captain dies in the storm, the hunt is on to find the box of treasure—and the key—which will bring its keeper eternal life. As pirates, islanders, and other shadowy figures clamour for the prize, we are taken on a swashbuckling adventure of greed, bravery, and immortality.

The Gaiety School of Acting – The National Theatre School of Ireland is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 1986 by the internationally renowned theatre director Joe Dowling, in response to the lack of full time actor training programmes in Ireland at that time. The School is now widely regarded as the country’s premier training facility for actors.
