“I think the quality of what Scamp do is amazing” MICHAEL MORPURGO

Pirate Gran

Meet Gran.

She bakes. She knits. You’d never guess she was a Pirate! 

‘Pirating isn’t the life for everyone, but Gran says if you don’t mind sleeping in a hammock and being called Scary Mary, then it’s a career more girls should think about.’

With a pet crocodile under her bed, a wicked sense of humour and a whole raft of adventures under her belt – time with Gran is never dull!  Gran isn’t scared of anything. Not even monsters.

And then there’s Grandpa.

A brand new swashbuckling show, from the team that bring books to life.  Previous productions include Stick Man – Live on Stage, Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales and Private Peaceful. 

An absolute treat for seafaring children aged 3+ and their shipmates of all ages.


Presented by Scamp Theatre and Watford Palace Theatre

Based on the books by Geraldine Durrant and Rose Forshall

Directed by Pieter Lawman
