The Count of Monte Cristo
by alexandre dumas
Young Edmond Dantes has it all – the love of the beautiful Mercedes, a promising career of adventure on the high seas and a remarkably well-balanced relationship with his father. But all is not as rosy as it seems, for Edmond is the unwitting victim of three envious acquaintances who devise a scheme to falsely accuse him of treason.
Sentenced to life in prison, Dantes must find the means to escape the impenetrable walls of the Chateau d’If, discover the whereabouts of Mercedes and exact a terrible revenge upon the men who robbed him of his future.
An epic story of fate and fury, revenge and hubris, The Count of Monte Cristo is the ultimate tale of vigilante justice.
We premiered our original adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’ formidable page-turner in London and then toured to Essex, Sussex and Oxfordshire.
