Preview – The Legend of the Scarlet Pimpernel – as you’ve never seen it before:
There are times when I get to hear about something that needs to be shared. There’s just one London performance scheduled of ‘I’m An Aristocrat – Get Me Out Of Here, so if you miss it, you’ll have to venture to Oxford where the show will continue until Christmas. But on 10th November, the production is showing at the Pleasance Theatre in Islington. Gonzo Moose (previous shows Grimm and Grimmer and Is That A Bolt In Your Neck) are a dynamic young company who aim to amuse, entertain and challenge in their shows.
Paris, 1792. Revolution grips the city and the secret police march traitors to their deaths. No one is safe. Everyone is a suspect. Paris needs a hero, someone who can deliver it from this terror and restore freedom and justice. Will such a hero emerge? Yes.
With comedy and thrills galore you’ll gasp, laugh and be amazed at the elaborate sword fights, the heart wrenching love scenes, and the sensational death-defying French accents. Inspired by the legend of the Scarlet Pimpernel, this wonderfully inventive and gripping comedy features three fearless and daring actors, playing over 20 roles in 75 minutes of fast-paced fun and electrifying action.

I’m an Aristocrat Get Me Out of Here has been developed in conjunction Pegasus Theatre Oxford and should provide a fun and lively night out. The company’s unique brand of spoofed up genres, mashed up stories all laced with a good dose of silliness and slapstick should make this an evening to remember. Founded by Mark Dawson and Paschale Straiton in 2000, this production by Gonzo Moose is directed by Abigail Anderson and performed by Mark Dawson, Jonathan Peck and Lauren Silver.
Tickets are £10
