AFTER their last show Dracula: The Bloody Truth was licensed worldwide and enjoyed a sell-out run in Canada, the award-winning Le Navet Bete are back with a hilarious new version of the classic tale: The Three Musketeers.

Building on Dracula’s success, the Exeter-based physical comedy theatre company have turned to hugely experienced set designer Ti Green and internationally renowned choreographer Lea Anderson to lift their latest production to a new level.

This new co-production with the Exeter Northcott Theatre is the company’s fifth full-length indoor touring show and once again sees them team up with long time co-conspirator and legendary comedy writer and director, John Nicholson.

The creative team will be joined by vastly experienced choreographer Lea Anderson MBE, founder of The Cholmondeleys dance company, and critically acclaimed theatre designer Ti Green, who brought the Peruvian Andes to the Bristol Old Vic for last year’s national tour of Touching the Void.

Somerset County Gazette:

Audiences are invited to join hot-headed D’Artagnan as he rides to Paris astride his questionable steed determined to become a Musketeer, armed only with a baguette, his childish excitement and a sense of misplaced bravado.

Director and writer John Nicholson said: “The Three Musketeers is a really fun prospect for Le Navet Bete. It’s a widely known and well-loved story which is often played for laughs in amongst the drama. But in Le Navet Bete’s hands you can be sure it will hit the funny bone hard. With just four performers, it’ll be a distinctive offering.

“We’re especially excited to be working with designer Ti Green and choreographer Lea Anderson - two people who are nationally recognised as being amongst the best in the business.”

Al Dunn co-artistic director said: “This year we’re thrilled to be creating a Three Musketeers unlike any other. It has all the elements of an epic story that we can turn inside out and put our chaotic comic spin on to make the show burst off the stage!”

Le Navet Bete are performing The Three Musketeers at The Tacchi Morris Arts Centre on June 27 and 28 at 7:30pm. For more information visit or call 01823 414141.
