The Scarlet Pimpernel

he Scarlet Pimpernel is an adventure set during the French Revolution in 1789. The title character is a brave swordsman who works to help the poor and innocent people of France, but the Pimpernel has an enemy named Chauvelin. Chauvelin is a cruel representative of the French Government. Marguerite, a famous actress, is married to the well-to-do socialite, Sir Percy Blakeney. They get caught up in Chauvelin’s plan to catch the infamous Pimpernel. However, the Pimpernel is always one step ahead, laughing at Chauvelin by leaving a simple flower, a scarlet pimpernel, at the scene of every crime. Will Chauvelin finally be able to bring the Pimpernel to justice?

This story is all about loyalty. Loyalty to your country, to your friends and to the ones you love. Will the Pimpernel be able to outwit the Chauvelin? Come and join us for another classic tale to find out!
