When the local acapella group gathers in the village hall they have every reason to look forward to their weekly rehearsal. There’s Steven, 60, the Cambridge-educated choirmaster; Diane, his younger wife; Ben, who was once a professional tennis player married to Connie, who was once a model; and Bruno, a young history teacher, who cares for his mother.

 

They appear to be the friendliest bunch you could imagine. Whatever differences or problems they may have at home, they are happily bound together by their love of music. Two hours of laughter and harmonies fly by, until one day newcomer, Maggie, knocks on the door and everything changes…

Culture Vultures trip to see The Scarlett Pimpernel at the Egg - Bath Theatre Royal

The Scarlett Pimpernel
The Egg at Theatre Royal, Bath

 

The revolution is in full swing and Madame Guillotine’s blade chops night and day. But on the perilous streets of Paris, whispers abound that a mysterious band of Englishmen are helping French aristos to escape, led by a flamboyant masked hero. But who is this elusive and reckless daredevil?

 

The Scarlet Pimpernel is a laugh-out-loud comedic romp jam-packed with elaborate hoaxes, buffoonery and nincompoops. In a world where men dress as women, and women dress as men, nothing is as it seems. With plenty of song, outrageous fashion, intrigue and derring-do, this swashbuckling tale is the perfect festive treat.

 

Suitable as a Christmas treat for children over 6 years old and definitely for grown-ups under 100 years old!

 

Members: £39.50

Guests: £43.50
