Scaramouche – Iowa State University Theatre

by Barbara Field, from the novel 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. This delightful classic overflows with memorable escapades. “He was born with the gift for laughter and a sense that the world was mad.”

November 12-14 and December 3-5, 1999 – Fisher Theater, Ames
