by Pat Whymark & Julian Harries

They seek him here, they seek him there, Those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
Is he in Heaven, or is he in Hell,
Or an Arts Centre in Suffolk – who can tell?

1793. Paris is gripped by the Jacobins. The Compte de Creme-Brulée is to be guillotined on the morrow. His only hope, a daring swoop by that dashing master of disguise and echo-location, The Scarlet Pipistrelle, who has already undertaken several rescues of aristocrats. Who knows, perhaps this time, he might actually succeed!

Common Ground will be concocting their trademark heady mix of genre pastiche, musical dexterity and sheer lunacy that East Anglian Christmas audiences know and love.
