The Story

One day a mysterious bottle bumps against the side of Piggy Pirate's ship. Thinking it is a rare vintage rum, he fishes it out and finds a map leading to a fabulous treasure. On his journey he meets Matilda Merpig, who helps him navigate the high seas to the place where X marks the spot. But Piggy and Matilda find something far more unexpected than treasure...

A swashbuckling adventure with sea creatures, shanties and beautiful handmade puppets. 
The Storytellers
Marina and Miranda are two sisters who live in a secret seaside cove. They tend their garden of shells and coral, free fish from nets, and keep the sea clean and safe for the creatures.

In the evenings they sing sea shanties, and sit on the rocks listening to the tales the mermaids tale of far and distant shores.
