Scaramuccia (literally “little skirmisher”), also known as Scaramouche or Scaramouch, is a stock clown character of the Italian commedia dell’arte.

From the murder of one innocent young seminarist to full blown bloody revolution in the streets of Paris, SCaRaMOUCHe is a swashbuckling tale of romance, revenge and political upheaval. Adapted from Raphael Sabatini’s 1921 novel, this play resonates with uncanny parallels of the modern political climate. and what of these special men of privilege? They set themselves apart from responsibility, these self-proclaimed. They answer to no one, for they believe themselves to be above the laws of God and answering to no man. And if those inalienable rights be challenged, how do they answer? By changing the law. People of Rennes, where is your Constitution? It bubbles in the melting pot of power, rancid with their schemes and private agendas.
