SYNOPSIS: Les Miserables
, Victor Hugo's timeless classic, dazzles in this exciting new adaptation that is perfect for high school and community theater groups.
Beginning with Inspector Javert's opening words, “You are free,” Jean Valjean leaves Toulon prison after serving nineteen years for stealing a loaf of bread. With nowhere to go and rejected by everyone he meets, Valjean once again turns to theft, only this time he is shown an act of mercy by a kindly priest who sees in the struggling beggar a glimmer of hope. Humbled by the priest's kindness, Valjean violates his parole and dedicates his life to goodness and to helping others. Meanwhile, Valjean is pursued by Inspector Javert, whose relentless dedication to the law requires he bring the ex-convict to justice for breaking his parole.
