Originally produced by West Yorkshire Playhouse, UK, in 2001

Little Jack was sent to Grandad Jack’s house while his mum went to work. Little Jack was certainly grumpy, ’cause at Grandad’s house there’s nothing to do – or so he thought. When Grandad Jack reveals he is a pirate, he and Little Jack decide to find where Wildman Jacko hid Grandad’s watch and the adventure begins! Little Jack realizes “inside I’m a pirate not just a boy, just like my Grandad Jack.”

“…a tale with charm, humor, and real feeling.” –The Stage, UK
