Release date and synopsis to be announced.
The normality of a sunny London afternoon is brutally shattered when a man is killed in the street, in broad daylight. Screams fill the air as passers-by try to help the victim or helply observe the drama unfold before them. Their lives will never be the same again. Doug Lucie's powerful and satirical drama examines the impact of such a shocking event, as recounted by passers-by and residents who witnessed it: Roy the local window cleaner; Johnny, an Investment Banker; Kayleigh, a young part-time beauty therapist; WPC Flanagan; Pam who cares full-time for her husband Brian, and Avelina, the victim's wife. Their testimonies unfold revealing not only the personal repercussions of such an event but contemporary attitudes to violence, immigration, and community, across the social and cultural strata which jostle for space in our cities.
The roads in and out of Paris are heavily guarded, but the dead have easy passage out of the city. A ragged old woman transports the coffins of the most recent victims of the guillotine and is waved on unimpeded.
Later, the same crone watches five French aristocrats step out of their coffins unscathed. Not beheaded but spirited away to safety by that most elusive of spies: the Pimpernel. Or, as she's known in polite society, Lady Scarlet Cavendish.
When not assuming her secret identity as a hero of the French Revolution, Scarlet presents herself as a fashionable, featherbrained young widow flitting about London. In truth, this façade is merely a diversion designed to conceal her clandestine work in France. Among members of the doomed French aristocracy, the Pimpernel is renowned for her bravery and cunning. But when tasked with rescuing handsome Comte Matteo Durand, she faces an unprecedented challenge: she is falling in love with the man. If ever there were a time to keep her head, it is now— because in a world brimming with intrigue, she is not the only one harboring secrets. And if Scarlet doesn't take care, Madame la Guillotine may finally catch up with the Pimpernel.
