So here’s the story so far:
Andre-Louis, a privileged lawyer from Gavrillac, is on a mission to speak out for the downtrodden. After speaking out in Rennes and later at Nantes, he is on the run from the law, who wish to take him to task for inciting rebellion. He runs across some travelling players, and is eventually blackmailed to play the part of Scaramouche in tonight’s show.
