A new comedic one-act adaptation of Baroness Orczy's classic adventure tale by Leicester playwright, Paul Gosling, directed by the author and Liza Mortimer.

Sir Percy Blakeney's life is an endless series of extravagant parties and privilege, but it all disguises a secret life as a gentleman adventurer, the 'Scarlet Pimpernel'.

Percy and his band of friends risk everything to rescue the French nobility from the hands of their Revolutionary government and the guillotine - but can they keep their secret from those closest to them?

Crooked Hand Productions present The Scarlet Pimpernel.

Show duration: 75 mins.
