The Three Musketeers
St Pauls Church, Covent Garden
After interviewing for the position of set designer back in March, we started working with the Iris Theatre the very next day, up until opening night on 5th August 2018. Due to the promenade nature of the performance we created four different 'worlds' for the audience to be taken through, two inside the church itself.
It’s 1626 and a young d’Artagnan sets out for Paris, determined to join the King’s Musketeers. There’s just one problem, women aren’t allowed. Undaunted, our heroine disguises herself as man and manages to befriend the legendary Musketeer trio Athos, Aramis and Porthos.
The four fast friends are soon caught up in deadly plot involving the Queen, twelve diamonds studs and the safety of the entire French state. Will this mean war with England? Will all four of our heroes survive? And will anyone discover d’Artagnan’s secret?
