The Three Musketeers

Alexander Dumas classic novel The Three Musketeers is being given life at the Holy Sepulchre Church in Northampton.

The Cyphers Theatre Company return to the venue, having previously performed Shakespeare’s Henry V, on Friday July 15 and Saturday July 16.

The Three Musketeers tells the story of d’Artagnan, a feisty young Gascon who sets out for Paris with the hope of joining the King’s Musketeers.

He quickly becomes embroiled in a political game much bigger and much more dangerous than he could possibly have imagined.

A thrilling adventure of love and revenge unfolds in which d’Artagnan must save not only France but also the woman he loves.

Cyphers’ brand new adaptation sees four actors play nearly thirty roles, as the three musketeers Athos, Porthos and Aramis relate d’Artagnan’s story in approximately two hours of fast-paced and exhilarating action.

The show starts at 7.30pm both nights. Visit www.cyphers.org.uk for more details or to book tickets.
