scarlet pimp all of teamJames Purefoy stars as Sir Percy Blakeney in Jonathan Holloway’s new adaptation of Baroness Orczy’s classic tale, set in the French Revolution.

Holloway’s political interpretation is brought to life by an ensemble cast including Sienna Guillory as Marguerite Blakeney and Enzo Cilenti as the spine-chilling revolutionary soldier, Henri Chauvelin.

Muscular acting, pungent words, threat and jeopardy replace the whimsy of other adaptations and are floated on a contemporary, filmic score written by Sarah Llewellyn, with sound design by Wilfredo Acosta.
