Come gather close and hear this tale, of Scarborough in the age of sail:
The Curse of the Smuggler’s Run
This summer, witness the Scarborough of 1822 where smuggling is a way of life. When firebrand revenue man George 'Flogger' Ballard arrives in town to put a stop to it, events take a dangerous turn. With the threat of the noose or transportation never far away, will local merchant James Law tolerate Ballard's interference in his other 'free-trading' business? And what of Hetty Pashby, drawn into Law's racketeering from her fishing background? Can she find love and the life she craves? And who of all of them will find that hoard of buried gold?
Blending historical fact and imaginative storytelling through music, song and adventure, 'The Curse of the Smuggler's Run' celebrates the story of those who smuggled and those whose job it was to stop them. With laughs along the way, this fast-action tale is set in the heart of Scarborough, sharing local legends from the town's colourful past. Join us in Scarborough Market Hall and take a seat in the heart of the Old Town, where the actual events took place nearly 200 years ago!
