The Scarlet Pimpernel
By Baroness Orczy
Adapted by Jenny Wicks
We seek him here, we seek him there,
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere!
It’s 1792 and France is deep in the throes of revolution. The aristocracy are holding out for a hero, and one swoops in from across the Channel.
A tale of England and France, of rich and poor, of divided loyalties and of a mysterious hero saving French nobles from the guillotine – just for fun!
A small troupe of actors adopt a variety of disguises, accents and probably some beards, as Baroness Orczy’s classic adventure story gets the Jenny Wren treatment.
Vive la Révolution! Liberté! Égalité! Fraternité! And knitting!
In the open-air – please bring a blanket or chair (grounds open at 6pm for picnics).
