The Three Musketeers
adapted from the Alexander Dumas novel
Directed by Celia Bonner
23rd - 25th July 2009
Willis Hall brings Dumas' swashbuckling tale to the stage in a lively, tongue-in-cheek version of the original book. Set between 1625 and 1628, some of the characters are based on genuine people in history, while others are purely fictional.
D'Artagnan, a young Gascon, goes to Paris to join King Louis XIII's Musketeers and is befriended by three valiant members of that force: Athos, Porthos and Aramis. He shares their adventures, foiling the evil plans of Cardinal Richelieu and Milady de Winter to discredit Louis' wife, Anne.
Awful fun, and fun for all!
