About this 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...? An hilarious, roller-coaster ride through actual and imaginary history, Napoleon: A Defence/I> 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.
