Drake's Dream enjoyed a limited run at London's Shaftesbury Theatre in the late 1970's following its earlier opening at the Connaught Theatre in Worthing. It is a biographical musical based on Sir Francis Drake's iconic sail around the world during the 16th century and in 1977, was commemorating his 400th anniversary. The show was recorded prior to its West End run before another playwright was brought in to revise the production - it then went on to play the Westminster Theatre early the following year.
