“It takes real skill to take a sturdy piece of classic literature and turn it into one of the most imaginative shows of the year.” Andrew Clarke, reviewing our production of The Count of Monte Cristo in the EADT

A fantastical tale of new beginnings, featuring Julian Harries as the Ridiculous Man, with Pat Whymark and Emily Bennett providing live musical accompaniment. It tells the story of a man who, much like Scrooge in Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, has a dream which saves his life, brings him back from the edge of despair, reconnects him to society and restores his faith in humanity. Its a poignant, funny and cathartic piece, particularly appropriate for this present moment in time.

 

The show will feature live original music by Pat Whymark incliuding settings of late 19th Century Russian poetry.

90 mins long, incl. interval.
