Fringe family fun with Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs!

Flinn is back! Les Petits Theatre Company (Adventures in Wonderland) return to the high seas after their hugely successful and award-winning Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs rollicked the rigging and spliced the mainbrace! The Magic Cutlass is the hugely anticipated sequel based on the award-winning book by Giles Andreae and Russell Ayto.

When Flinn, Pearl and Tom are in the middle of their school play their old nemesis, Mr T the
T-Rex, appears and kidnaps the children forcing them to hunt for the secretive Magic Cutlass - a sword that grants the holder any wish. The children are whisked away for another fantastic adventure to a world of devious dinosaurs, deep sea dangers and smelly sausages. It's all aboard, me hearties, for a real life pirate adventure!

Will fearless Flinn be able to outwit the pirate dinosaurs? Will Pirate Pearl be brave enough to battle the dangerous dinos and will terrified Tom be back in time for tea? All aboard for a non-stop action packed theatrical experience with live music, puppetry and dastardly dinosaurs!

Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs 2: The Magic Cutlass is brought to life by Les Petits, the exciting children’s theatre company from the team behind internationally-acclaimed theatre company, Les Enfants Terribles (Alice’s Adventures Underground). Les Petits aims to ignite children’s imaginations through the magic of theatre and storytelling.

Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs was the winner of the Primary Times Children’s Choice Award 2012. This is a bright sparky production, filled with hum-along songs, beautiful puppets and a lot of imagination (Time Out).

Adapter Oliver Lansley comments, "After the huge success of Captain Flinn and The Pirate Dinosaurs, which won the Primary Times Choice Award for Best Children’s Play, we are thrilled to be bringing the sequel to Edinburgh, where the journey first started."
