Swallows & Amazons

Directed by Rodney Pearson

This was a delightful and gloriously inventive production, an action-packed adventure for the whole family. Cobham Players was the first amateur group to produce this play. It is a children’s adventure story, but to add to the charm the cast were adults playing the parts of the children. Based on the novel by Arthur Ransome and adapted by Helen Edmundson. All aboard The Swallow! Follow Captain John and his able crew as they set sail to Wildcat Island on an exotic adventure to encounter savages, capture dastardly pirates and defeat mortal enemies! This is a story of an idyllic era, of endless summer evenings and the beauty of youthful imagination.
