About the Play:
Based on the classic novel by Victor Hugo and set in post-revolution France, Les Miserables tells the story of Jean Valjean, a prisoner who breaks his parole and is chased by the ruthless police inspector Javert. At the same time, a working class girl with a child is forced into prostitution in order to pay the money to the evil innkeeper and his wife to look after her child, Cosette. Valjean saves the child and eventually a love triangle is formed between Cosette, Marius who is a student of the rebellion and Eponine, a street girl. The story reaches it climax amongst the backdrop of the June rebellion, with the people singing of their anger and fight upon the barricades.
