‘They seek him here, they seek him there…..’ but for an evening of unalloyed entertainment you need look no further than the Minack Theatre, where our elusive hero will be rescuing French aristocrats from the shadow of Mme La Guillotine, right under the noses of their dastardly captors!  

Sir Percy Blakeney appears to be nothing more than a foppish playboy.  In reality he is The Scarlet Pimpernel, a formidable swordsman, master of disguise, and quick thinking escape artist - the toast of English society, and the arch-nemesis of revolutionary France.  

Featuring music, dancing, swordplay, and a large cast of colourful characters, The Scarlet Pimpernel is the perfect summer cocktail of swashbuckling romance and adventure!
