WHAT’S THE STORY?
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells the story of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his quest for redemption.
Having served 17 years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread for his starving niece, a kindly Bishop inspires Valjean to begin a new life.
Breaking parole, Valjean is hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert.
When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
