A SWASHBUCKLING outdoor theatrical treat is coming to The Cotswolds next week and will take in the Northleach Discovery Centre, Museum in the Park in Stroud, Painswick's Rococo Garden and Thornbury Castle.

IKP's Three Musketeers will offer fun for all the family with slapstick, physical humour, swashbuckling galore (and a smattering of playful innuendo for the grown-ups).

Join D’Artagnan, Athos, Porthos and Aramis as they travel the length and breadth of France saving the day, rescuing people in distress and generally being heroes.

Follow D’Artagnan in her quest to join the Musketeers in this comedy adaptation which takes the audience on a whistle-stop tour around France, and still has time for a quick trip across the Channel.

With physical comedy, fast-paced action and quick wit, IKP’s version of The Three Musketeers promises to entertain all ages.

Following their recent successes with Three Men in a Boat, Alice in Wonderland and The Wind in the Willows, IKP bring their unique style to this classic Alexandre Dumas novel. Expect swashbuckling, sword-fights and subterfuge in this fast, funny, family-friendly play, as five actors multi-role to create fast and furious comedy in this upbeat and up-to-date adaptation.

See The Three Muskateers at: Northleach Discovery Centre on Tuesday, August 14.

Stroud Museum in the Park on Sunday, August 19.

Thornbury Castle on Tuesday, August 21.

The Rococo Garden, Painswick on Sunday, August 26 and Monday, August 27.
