HOT: Caribbean Pirates by The Australian Shakespeare Company, Polly Woodside, 21 South Wharf Promenade, South Wharf

Caribbean Pirates at Polly Woodside is a fun, family-friendly live production by The Australian Shakespeare Company, the theatre troupe which has brought The Wind in the Willows to the Royal Botanic Gardens for almost 30 years.
