The National Theatre of Scotland has taken to the road with Kidnapped – A Swashbuckling Rom-Com Adventure,  reaching Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness and Perth. This riotous re-telling of Robert Louis Stevenson’s adventure novella follows 19-year-old Davie, who, never having left home, heads off with nothing but a hand-drawn map and quickly realises that he has a lot of catching up to do, as he navigates murderous foes, Jacobite outlaws and the most inept crew of pirates this side of the Atlantic. 

Packed with 20th-century pop music and 18th century romance and performed by a dynamic ensemble of actor-musicians, Kidnapped is a colourful coming of age story shot through with Stevenson’s trademark blend of poetry, humour and heart.
