Cyphers return to The Proud Archivist in April 2016 to preview their new adaptation of The Three Musketeers.
This Spring, Cyphers will bring their unique style to one of the great works of French literature, The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas. Previews of the production will take place from the 21-24 April 2016 at the London venue, The Proud Archivist, where Cyphers have recently been appointed Resident Theatre Company.
Cyphers will continue to develop the play throughout the preview performances, utilising audience feedback to inform the creative development of the piece. The show will then tour to venues across the UK later in the year.
ABOUT THE PRODUCTION
The Three Musketeers tells the story of d’Artagnan, a feisty young Gascon who sets out for Paris in 1625 with the hope of joining the King’s Musketeers. He quickly becomes embroiled in a political game much bigger and much more dangerous than he could possibly have imagined. A thrilling adventure of love and revenge unfolds in which d’Artagnan must save not only France but also the woman he loves.
Cyphers’ brand new adaptation sees four actors play nearly thirty roles, as the three musketeers (Athos, Porthos and Aramis) relate d’Artagnan’s story in approximately two hours of fast-paced and exhilarating Cast to be announced shortly.
Incorporating story-telling techniques with a back-to-basics approach, Cyphers empower audiences to use their own imaginations so that every audience member has an experience that is, on some level, unique and personal to them. They create a warm, inclusive and intimate environment where two groups of people (actors and audience) come together to experience a story.
Cyphers was founded by Marcus J. Bazley and Victoria Hamblen in 2013, and is currently the resident theatre company at The Proud Archivist, London.
