Les Miserables
Les Miserables
Drama. Adapted by Tim Kelly. From the novel by Victor Hugo.

Cast: 14m., 16w. (optional extras, smaller w/doubling.) Les Misérables, one of the world's greatest literary classics, sold out its first edition the day it went on sale in 1862. Since then, it has never been out of print. It has been filmed countless times and is currently the subject of a smash-hit international pop opera. Our gripping new version has been designed for very simple production (basically a few tables, chairs, and a bench). Under two hours in length, it is the story of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his relentless pursuit by "law and order" police inspector Javert. Filled with fascinating vignettes of 19th-century France, the script boasts a brilliant cast of characters who weave an exciting tapestry of humankind at its best and worst. Special emphasis has been placed on the many small roles and female characters—the tragic Fantine and her daughter Cosette, the wretched Madame Thenardier, the lovelorn Eponine—among others. Visually exciting, emotionally powerful, this is imaginative theatre with a capital "T." We highly recommend it for all groups—high school, college, amateur and professional. Arena/area staging. Approximate running time: 2 hours.
