The Treasure of the Pirate ship: outline of the story

Captain Big Ear just stole some real nice treasury from another man's ship. Together with his wife Honey and his parrot he tries to enjoy his new jewelry. That's not easy on the pirate ship, because some boatsmen would like to own the treasury box themselves. The sailors as well as the steersman, the carpenter and Cookie - the cook - seem to be interested. Meanwhile the pirates meet an Italian stranger and even a stowaway with some wishes... Then the water police are arriving, warning for a severe thunderstorm - that comes indeed... So, now what's happening to the sailors and to the treasury box?

The play has twelve characters plus one voice (the parrot).
