After premiering at the Exeter Northcott in May 2019, Exeter’s favourite funny men Le Navet Bete are back this summer with their hilarious take on The Three Musketeers.

Armed with only a baguette and his questionable steed join hot-headed d’Artagnan as he travels to Paris to become a musketeer. Will things go to plan? It’s unlikely! Featuring hilarious heroics, raucous romances and some bonkers fun with BMX bikes, Le Navet Bete condense Dumas’ 700-page classic into two hours of non-stop comedy gold.

Supported by a top notch band of brothers and sisters including long-time co-conspirator (and funny man director) John Nicholson (Peepolykus, BBC Radio 4) internationally renowned choreographer Lea Anderson MBE (The Cholmondeleys) and critically acclaimed set designer Ti Green (Touching the Void, Bristol Old Vic/ national tour), this show is the company’s biggest and most riotous to date.
