The Scotsman - - Fringereviews Hotshow -

I THInK the main prob­lem with this lively whores-and-pi­rates murder mys­tery set in St Lu­cia in 1750 is that it per­pet­u­ates the stereo­type of the happy hooker. Al­though peo­ple get their throats cut and their hearts bro­ken and there are a cou­ple of rape scenes, the un­der­ly­ing im­pres­sion is that the whores aboard are all hav­ing a jolly old time and can’t help fall­ing in love with the pi­rates.

Al­though the ac­tors do their best, the plot has too many in­con­sis­ten­cies and loose ends for this story to be in any way be­liev­able.
