The Scarlet Pimpernel
The Scarlet Pimpernel

by Baroness Orczy Adapted for the stage by Beverley Cross
Directed by Andy Briggs

27th June to 4th July 2020

Listen to the Director

Before Batman there was Zorro, before Zorro there was The Lone Ranger. And before any of these there was the original mysterious superhero, The Scarlet Pimpernel.

This production features a large cast and a multitude of characters. Among them is the courageous Scarlet Pimpernel who hides behind a public persona, Sir Percy Blakeney. A seemingly slow thinking foppish playboy, in reality he is a formidable swordsman and quick- thinking escape artist. The elusive hero and his followers are the toast of English society and the arch nemesis’ of revolutionary France.

We are very excited to also be taking this romantic adventure to The Minack in Cornwall in August.

“They seek him here, they seek him thereThose Frenchies seek him everywhere.”
