Tap Tap Theatre

EHE8: Captain Morgan and the Sands of Time

Ben Behrens

Directed by: Ben Behrens

Two actors. One musician. Forty-four characters. Captain Morgan and First Mate Hammond quest for secrets of time-travel in a rip-roaring adventure comedy with monsters, sword fights and shivered timbers. After a smash-hit run at the Edinburgh Fringe and having been selected to perform on the BBC Comedy Stage, Tap Tap Theatre presents a whirlwind of adventure and avarice, hilarity and heroics, as two actors travel across time and space using nothing but their bodies to conjure objects and set.
