To save their theatre, The Roxy Playhouse, a troupe of libertine actors plan to 'Robin Hood' their way through the Social Scene of Regency London
The Roxy Playhouse Irregulars are a troupe of libertine performers who live in a dilapidated theatre in Borough. After getting in deep with the debtors, the players stand to lose their beloved home and so they hatch a drastic scheme to pay off their debts, rebuild the Roxy and re-open it as a free-community theatre.
Using their unique skills they reinvent themselves as a team of 'performance thieves' and, led by the fictional Count Brandenburg, they infiltrate the London Social Scene and ‘Robin Hood’ their way through it. However, the players get more than they bargained for when they try to steal from an old enemy and become embroiled in a dark and dangerous plot that threatens the stability of the realm. The Roxy Players must then set aside their own plans and use their talents for the greater good in order to save the day and make it back to Borough in time for last orders.
‘Ocean’s Eleven out drinking with the Scarlet Pimpernel’ is the best analogous way of describing the style. Like Conan-Doyle’s London or Marquez’s Cartagena, the world of ‘Brandenburg’ is a heightened and fantastical vision of Regency England.
