The Count of Monte Cristo at Jack Studio 15 March
Myriad Productions presents The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas, adapted by Connie Stephens, at the Jack Studio Theatre, in Brockley, south east London, from 15 to 19 March 2011.
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 a 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.
