The inimitable Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen

Artistic Director Iwan Lewis, and the whole team at the award-winning Barn Theatre in Cirencester have revealed that the legendary interior designer, TV personality Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, will be making his professional theatre set design debut this year, as he joins the creative team of The Three Musketeers, bringing his unique creative vision to the show. 

The Three Musketeers will run at the Barn Theatre in Cirencester from Monday 25 November 2024 to Saturday 4 January, with a press night on Wednesday 27 November.  

Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen said: “I’m struggling to contain my excitement for The Three Musketeers - my head is full to the brim of Main Character Cavalier design. There’ll be more feathers, floppier cuffs, twirlier moustaches and much much more panache than the Cotswolds has seen since I moved here 18 years ago. I’m loving supporting The Barn Theatre, it’s been such a phenomenal success story which we Cirencester residents are so very proud of.” 

Chief Executive and Artistic Director Iwan Lewis said, “Laurence Llewelyn Bowen is a National Treasure and a local Cotswold Legend! After flirting with the idea of working together for a number of years, we finally found the perfect project. Laurence often talks about giving back to his community, and what better way than supercharging the Christmas show at the little Barn Theatre? He’s channelling the spirit of Alexandre Dumas’ iconic line “All for one, and one for all,' We are truly excited to have Laurence bring his extraordinary vision to our stage.”  

The Three Musketeers will be written by Alan Pollock, directed by Bryan Hodgson, with a score composed by Lee Freeman and lyrics by Mark Anderson, Andrew Hopkins as Musical Director, Joe Dines as sound designer, and with casting by Harry Blumenau Casting.
