Expect the unexpected with this comedy version of The Three Musketeers. For over a decade the award-winning Exeter-based theatre company Le Navet Bete (they translate it as The Daft Turnip, in case you're wondering) have been turning classic stories on their heads and lacing them with uniquely silly comedy.
Performed by a cast of four, the company takes on classic French literature with 40 characters, 50 different outfits and 112 costume changes as Dumas’s 700-page saga is condensed to two mad hours.
Featuring hilarious heroics, raucous romances and something bonkers with BMX bikes, it's all for one and every man for himself.
Co-artistic director Al Dunn said: “This Musketeers has all the elements of an epic story that we have turned inside out, to make the show burst off the stage – literally! We’ve got our best creative team to date behind us, so expect big laughs, unexpected characters and a night at the theatre you’ll never forget.”
Join the fun at Theatr Clwyd (March 1-5).
The gang are also performing their equally silly version of Treasure Island at York Theatre Royal (March 10-12) and Dracula: The Bloody Truth at Theatre Royal Wakefield (March 24-25). Click on the theatre names for info and tickets.
