About

The Man Whose Mother was a Pirate tells the story of Sam, an ordinary man who wears an ordinary suit and who works in an ordinary office. But his mother is an extraordinary mother – she’s a pirate and yearns to see the sea again.

A wonderful and madcap adventure ensues as they travel to the sea, with much audience involvement. You and your children will adore this all-time favourite story by New Zealand’s literary treasure, Margaret Mahy.

“Looking for a cute, entertaining show for the school holidays? One that will entertain kids and adults alike? I highly recommend The Man Whose Mother was a Pirate – fun for all the family.” Broadway World, April 2019
