Plays/ Opera

Les Musketieres Du Trois by Rats With Wings at the Blue Elephant Theatre - 6 to 8 July

From 06/07/2016 at 20:00 to 08/07/2016 at 22:00

These men might be heroes, clowns, simpletons or rogues. What is certain is that there are three of them… or four… (or five) and they are all very French.

These are harsh times: paupers will do anything for a bite to eat, while the gluttonous King Louis will consume anything he can get his grubby hands on. In order to rise from the gutter, one young man must fight for King, Queen and the love of his life to prove his worth. To succeed he’ll need new friends, but with friends like these…

Rats With Wings Theatre adopt a very physical form of storytelling, drawing inspiration from clowning, commedia, Lecoq and slapstick comedy to present a journey of bumbling sword fights, wailing peasants pompous courtiers and ridiculous romances. This series of hilarious scenarios is performed in a nonsensical faux-French, using half mask.

This new stage version of Alexandre Dumas’ classic novel 'The Three Musketeers' aims to explore the comedic speech of the body beyond words.
