The Hunchback of Notre Dame

by victor Hugo

Within the vast Gothic Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris lives Quasimodo the hunchbacked bell-ringer. Ridiculed and reviled by all for his physical appearance, he is shown compassion only by the gypsy Esmeralda, a compassion that he repays with absolute devotion.

Victor Hugo’s classic retelling of Beauty and the Beast follows the faithful, unlikely hero’s attempts to save Esmeralda from the black-hearted and lecherous Archdeacon Claude Frollo, his own adopted father.

Our original adaptation of Hugo’s magnificent, passionate novel premiered in London in Summer 2010 and then toured during Autumn to Essex, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire, Worcestershire, Surrey and Sussex.

"A great performance by the whole cast with an unusual twist in the tale. We sat so close to the actors that we felt part of the play, which made it even more absorbing. This production contains all the essentials for great entertainment, intrigue, humour, action and seduction. Thanks for a great afternoon!
