Pirates meet Musketeers in a new play at our towns annual pirate festival this coming weekend...
The South Devon Players community theatre company present:
The Musketeers And The Pirates
FREE FAMILY ALL - ACTION street theatre show this coming weekend in Brixham.(Devon)
In the 1620s- 30s, historically, the French navy was low in strength, and Cardinal Richeleiu made increasing the navys strength, a priority. As part of this new drive, since there were not sufficient shipyards, he purchased foreign ships and imported foriegn shipwrights and crews.
This 20-minute play tells the humourous, fictional story of his attempt to recruit a crew of privateers. Unfortunatly, there is a problem with the small-print, and the Cardinals old nemeses, the Musketeers, are also in town.
(optional donations in bucket always most welcome)
