‘My name is D’Artagnan, musketeer to King Louis the Thirteenth, defender of the Queen’s diamonds, and the man you tried to poison in that bar.’

When the young and naive D’Artagnan sets out on his quest to become a King’s musketeer, he immediately encounters the dangerous femme fatale, Milady de Winter. After discovering that the musketeers have been disbanded, he makes it his mission to get them reinstated. But will his feud with Milady thwart him? And who the heck is she?

This riotous adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’ classic novel by John Nicholson (Hound of the Baskervilles, Peepolykus) was originally performed by physical-comedy theatre company Le Navet Bete on a UK tour in 2019, with four actors playing over thirty characters. It was co-produced by Le Navet Bete and Exeter Northcott Theatre.

The Three Musketeers will suit any theatre company or drama group looking for a funny, high-energy adaptation of a universally loved story, which is suitable for audiences of all ages. Swashbuckling and rollicking adventure guaranteed – convincing French accents, not so much.

‘Utterly hilarious and heartfelt’
The Reviews Hub

‘A beautifully realised piece of work… enormous fun and full of quirkiness… a joyful, slightly bonkers, artistically clever and accomplished piece of theatre… a visual and aural feast’

‘An enthusiastic riot of dad jokes, dodgy accents and gleeful gallivanting’
