EPIC TALES IN EPIC FORMS
The Count of Monte Cristo
Playwright: Christopher M Walsh
Based on the Novel by: Alexandre Dumas
Framed by a conspiracy of three terrible enemies, Edmond Dantès is torn from the woman he loves and wrongly imprisoned for fourteen years. After escaping captivity, he enters the upper reaches of Parisian society under a new name: the Count of Monte Cristo. With the aid of Albert, son of his former fiancée, the Count insinuates himself into the lives of his three tormentors and, one by one, seeks to use their own secrets to destroy them. A dark tale of intrigue and vengeance.
"Walsh's stellar adaptation [is] a guilty theatrical pleasure you don't have to atone for afterward. It's zesty, good fun — colorful theatrical comfort food with enough philosophical seasoning and emotional heat..." –Chicago Tribune
