Elu­sive Pim­per­nel at the cathe­dral

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your News -

They seek him here, they seek him there, those French­men seek him ev­ery­where! The mys­te­ri­ous Scar­let Pim­per­nel is ex­pected to ap­pear in the Clois­ters of Peter­bor­ough Cathe­dral on Thurs­day, Au­gust 25, when Box­tree Pro­duc­tions present their swash­buck­ling out­door theatre show at 7pm.

With in­trigue, ad­ven­ture, sword­fights and songs, plus some py­rotech­nics and ro­mance for good mea­sure, there is some­thing for all the fam­ily to en­joy in this mag­i­cal evening of open-air theatre.

Ar­rive from 6pm and en­joy the beau­ti­ful cathe­dral set­ting. You can take a pic­nic or head for the hog roast, or gourmet burg­ers and hot dogs. There will also be a bar and ice cream cart.

The Scar­let Pim­per­nel is set in Paris in 1793, when young English gentle­men of un­ri­valled dar­ing risked their lives to res­cue French aris­to­crats from the guil­lo­tine at the height of the French Revo­lu­tion.

They left no trace ex­cept a note from the “Scar­let Pim­per­nel”. Pur­sued by the ruth­less spy Chau­velin, the Scar­let Pim­per­nel and his men must use all their wits to evade cap­ture and stay alive.

Ad­vance tick­ets are £9 (child), £12 (adult) and £33 (fam­ily) on­line via www.peter­bor­ough-cathe­dral.org.uk or from Peter­bor­ough In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre, Bridge Street, Peter­bor­ough (01733 452336).
