Pirates, Shane and Gareth, have been marooned in the present. How will they survive without a code of values to guide them?

Award-winning Australian Company, Gobsmacked, return to Edinburgh with Emilie Collyer’s dark and quirky comedy about young men navigating their way through a complex and dangerous world.

Combining distinctive text, striking visual imagery, a heightened performance style and original songs the audience are taken on a theatrical journey that ‘will sit with you long after the house lights have come up’ ( 2016).
