Written by Barbara Field
Based on the story by Rafael Sabatini
In the swashbuckling tradition of The Three Musketeers comes this romantic adventure, based on one the this century’s most popular historical novels. Scaramouche tells the exciting story of a young aristocrat thrust by chance into the turbulent politics of the French Revolution. His successive endeavors as a lawyer, politician, actor, lover, and buffoon lead his enemies to call him “Scaramouche” – the clown – but he fights on, dazzling the world with his elegant orations and precision swordsmanship.
"Field has condensed Sabatini’s prose into urgent, juicy theater that carefully truncates its source material so as not to compromise the quintessence of its themes."-The GW Hatchet
