Pof the Falmouth River Festival 2011 the Young Promoters, The Works and The Poly are proud to bring back to Cornwall the Fabulous Le Navet Bete. Le Navet Bete’s third feature show – NAPOLEON: A DEFENCE is a one hour show based on the premise of four clowns deciding that Napoleon was innocent of all charges and attempting a defence of his character, his record, and his obsession with Josephine’s body odour.
But of course, where clowns tread, every floorboard has a deadly spring… Who will finally get to play Napoleon? Is that a real chicken?Where did they get those beautiful suits made? And what exactly does Winston Churchill have to do with any of this….?
A hilarious, roller-coaster ride through actual and imaginary history.
NAPOLEON: A DEFENCE will take you to places you thought you knew, but will turn them upside down and inside out so you don’t know where the laughter is coming from.
