1789 was the year of the French Revolution, and also of the infamous Mutiny on the Bounty. Rebellion and new ideas of democracy were in the air.
After overthrowing Captain Bligh, Fletcher Christian drops anchor at the remote island of Pitcairn in the southern Pacific, so to establish a society of equals with his fellow sailors and their Tahitian followers. But the settlers are loath to relinquish their privileges and vices, and the Tahitians dream of home.
With salty humour and growing horror, Richard Bean charts the colony’s descent from a new Eden to brutal dystopia. Richard Bean’s plays include One Man, Two Guvnors (National Theatre and West End); The Heretic (Royal Court), The Big Fellah (Out of Joint) and the forthcoming West End musical Made in Dagenham.
