Event Notes


Directed by Ruth Lawrence, Produced by Jennifer Hawley, Written by Luke Lawrence

Starring Luke Lawrence, Che Durena, Sima Sepeheri, Joel Thomas Hynes, Patricia Andrews, Mary Walsh and other swashbucklers.

In this heartwarming comedy, Tommy is a young actor/dishwasher with dyslexia who can’t seem to get a break. One day, he lands a well-paying acting a pirate for a kids’ party bus. But a series of misadventures, including a showdown with the pirate he displaced and a joyride on a stolen boat, threatens to turn it all into a spectacular failure, until Tommy learns how to fight his own battles while accepting what makes him unique.

An adult coming-of-age story told through a neurodivergent lens, with self-effacing humour, and some sweet stop motion animations.
