A catastrophe has occurred at sea…
The HMS Adela is in pieces and the crew have struggled ashore. Captain Francisco is lost, presumed dead, but rumours abound of his survival, cast away on a desert island, sending message after message out in little plastic bottles, haunted by visions of his crew, his loved ones, his parrot, and hallucinogenic experiences he had as a teenager.
He is really, really cross…
Join us on a voyage of discovery and intrigue, as we journey from our delinquent dockside, to a desert island full of delights. Be thwarted by shipwrecks, astounded by staggering feats of dexterous circus skills, and seduced by the divine musical score from The Carny Villains. Be mesmerised by mermaids, hunted down by customs and excise, lose all sense of direction in the sea mist, and finally stumble back to port, victorious, clutching onto your treasured portraits from The Invisible Photo Booth, with a tattoo you wont regret in the morning, and a head full of deep sea dreams.
Dress code: Deep sea diverse: fish nets, drag nets, lobster pots and loan sharks, with a totally tropical taste.
