Review: Swallows and Amazons, Liverpool Playhouse - Liverpool Arts - Culture - Liverpool Daily Post
AHOY, me hearties, there be pirates afoot in the Playhouse, where the stage version of Arthur Ransome's well-loved children's story has more gumption than a one- legged buccaneer with a treasure map in his hand.

29/03/2012, REVIEW: Swallows and Amazons at the Liverpool Playhouse - ECHO reviews - Entertainment - Liverpool E

ARTHUR RANSOME’S gentle tale of a group of youngsters’ Lakeland adventures may no longer be required childhood reading, but this musical retelling of the 1930 original shows his world still has the power to both entrance and entertain.

The Public Reviews » CHILD’S EYE VIEW: Swallows and Amazons – Liverpool Playhouse
I went to the Liverpool Playhouse last night with my dad, we saw Swallows and Amazons. This play is brilliant, I have given it five stars but I would have given it ten, if I could. I have not read the books but that did not matter, I have asked for them for my birthday.

At first thought, you might decide that Arthur Ransome’s stories about middle-class children having boating adventures at the start of the 1930s were pretty irrelevant in the 2010s. But they’re not. The Swallows and Amazons series is still much read by its intended age-group and – which is even more...

Mais, aucune sortie officielle n'est prévue.
