A re-telling of Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped

Date Posted: 02/12/2013

Adapted by emerging playwright Ivan Wilkinson, Sell a Door Theatre Company launches its 2014 season with an imaginative re-telling of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Kidnapped, touring the UK from 16th January.

Opening in Greenock and running until 23rd May, Kidnapped will visit Wolverhampton, Richmond and Chesterfield as part of the 40-date tour.


Billed as an adventure tale for all, Kidnapped tells the story of Davie Balfour as he survives shipwreck and murder to dramatically escape to the Highlands of Scotland.

Set against the fierce social and political backdrop of 1750s Scotland, the story is packed full of physical storytelling and imagination.
