Cumbernauld Theatre presents Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson at Paisley Arts Centre on Friday 27 April, 7.30pm.
This fantastic new adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s timeless classic Kidnapped. Set against the backdrop of revolution in Scotland, this epic tale brings a host of memorable characters to life onstage with all the evocative language of Robert Louis Stevenson. A terrific and exciting story of intrigue and adventure.
Ed Robson, Artistic Director of Cumbernauld Theatre said:
“Robert Louis Stevenson was simply a genius and Kidnapped is one of the best known stories in all the world – adapting it for the stage has been a fantastic experience. It’s a true classic because it’s all about us, the Scots, our hopes and fears, the people and the country we live in. Right now, when there’s talk of independence in the air, Kidnapped has never been a more important story to tell.”
Robert Louis Stevenson is one of Scotland most well known and well loved authors, his powerful and evocative descriptions along with ship-wrecks, murder and deadly pursuit all combine to create a production which young people and adults will thoroughly enjoy.
