Scarlet Pumpernickel, The
by Dave Buchanan published 2004
Suitable for All Groups
A hilarious new script set against the background of the French Revolution Join Percy Breakneck & chums in their adventures as they seek to thwart baddy Citizen Chauvelin's evil plans!
The villagers of Saucissons-sur-Mer are shocked when Citizen Chauvelin threatens to ban their beloved pastime of boules unless they turn over the Scarlet Pumpernickel. When Chauvelin arrests heroine Simone de Boudoir, hero Percy Breakneck plus the Three Fops, dame Mimi Blancmange and Mayor Gaston Legroom devise a cunning rescue plan. The Chateau where Simone is held is (allegedly) haunted, and the scene is set for a denouement full of thrills and comic horror.
