A riotous new play about four young adventurers.

David, Dickie and Mary are starting a journey they will never forget. With their new friend - a girl called Peter - they go off on their own and make a secret camp. They start The Lone Pine Club (which must be a REAL secret particularly from grown-ups who generally spoil EVERYTHING however nice they are). What begins as a game becomes a true test of courage and loyalty as they find themselves tumbling into all sorts of scrapes and adventures.

A treat for all ages, including 'proper growed-ups'... Elizabeth Freestone’s spritely production captures the heartiness of the adventures, but injects some delicacy, too” 

Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

Good-quality traditional storytelling for young audiences... Refreshing. Warm hearted. Uplifting” 

Susan Elkin, The Stage
