The Three Musketeers
at Iris Theatre
Heroic deeds, epic duels and a lavish masquerade ball all come to life in a huge, outdoor adventure for all the family. 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 a 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? This summer in the grounds of St Paul’s Church in Covent Garden, join d’Artagnan on her secret mission to be the first female Musketeer. Paul-Ryan Carberry directs Daniel Winder’s adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’s classic novel as you’ve never seen it before. The Three Musketeers stars Jenny Horsthuis as d’Artagnan, who returns to Iris after her acclaimed performance as Malcolm in Macbeth last year, and features spectacular sword fights choreographed by Roger Bartlett (Treasure Island, 2016). Iris is an award-winning theatre company; most celebrated for its annual summer season. In 2017, the company hosted a record breaking year at St Paul’s with Macbeth and Hansel & Gretel, the latter shortlisted for Best Production for Young People (8+) at the Offies, the award the company won the previous year for Treasure Island.
