400: A Historical Comedy

As part of the Mayflower 400 commemoration programme of events, the award-winning Le Navet Bete (Dracula: The Bloody Truth, The Three MusketeersTreasure Island) are back in Plymouth this summer with a brand-new, fast-paced comedy for all the family.

Armed with bucket loads of fun, farce and physical comedy along with a truck load of costumes to boot, Devon’s favourite funny men harness their impeccable powers of improvisation to tackle 400 years of history. That is, until they are interrupted by an unexpected visit…

Teaming up, for the first time, with internationally renowned comedian Tony Hawks and their long-time collaborator, and one of UK theatre’s best comedy writers and directors, John Nicholson (Peepolykus, BBC Radio 4), expect hilarious musical numbers, questionable dance routines and some surprise special guests, in an ‘out of this world’ adventure you’ll never forget!

Originally programmed as part of the Athenaeum’s Summer 2020 Programme, 400: A Comedy will now be taking place in The Lyric and The Drum theatres in Summer 2021.
