This is a show suitable for all ages, and is a classic tale of redemption, compassion and revolution; set between 1815 and 1832 in France.
Jean Valjean, a workman who is jailed for stealing a loaf of bread, turns thief after his release, but is saved from an ongoing life of crime and hate by a kindly bishop. Valjean changes his identity and breaks parole; committing himself to a life of compassion for others. Pursued across France by a police officer, Javert; Valjean rescues the daughter of a woman who had been forced into prostitution, and brings her to Paris, bringing her up as his daughter. Years later, the young girl, Cosette, falls in love with a young revolutionary; Marius. Javert, however, is still hunting Jean Valjean, who decides to move his household to England, to escape once and for all. Faced with the prospect of never seeing his love again, Marius rejoins his revolutionary friends, who face their fate on the streets of Paris; and Valjean, learning of this, once more, intervenes.
(Content notes: The show is generally suitable for all ages. There are scenes of aggression and violence at various points in the story, as well as loud sounds of gunfire and cannonfire in the revolution scenes. There is no strong language and no nudity. )
