Overview

Based on the real-life cutthroat of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island and set around the historical pirate republic of Rabat, this wild tale of high seas and low politics exposes the class hatreds and religious hypocrisy of the seventeenth century. Only at sea, under a pirate flag, can the clamorous voices of republicanism, anarchy, and theocracy be heard.
