After watching ye olde pirate film, Treasure Island on Irys’ birthday, we decided that the story wasn’t quite complete. Seeing as Disney never made a sequel, we did it for them.
With a supply of sticks as swords and guns, knives with blades made of tin foil, a bit of spare change as doubloons and gold, some leather belts and a whole lot of enthusiasm, we set of to make Treasure Island Part 2.
Evan took the role of Long John Silver, the notorious pirate, Irys was Jim Hawkins, the young lad who aids him in his mischief and I, I was Ben Gun. Ben Gun is the mad pirate who Long John marooned on treasure island. I was also Evan’s imaginary parrot, Captain Flint.
We performed it on the towpath with Loon as our pirate ship.
