Staging Victor Hugo’s Masterpiece in Kashan

An adaptation of ‘Les Miserable’, the acclaimed novel of one of the best-known French writers Victor Hugo (1802-1885), is currently on stage at Farhang Hall in Kashan, Isfahan Province.
Directed by Hamidreza Akhound-Nasiri, the play has Akbar Razavian, Mohammad Hamidi-Shad, Zohreh Ostadi, Yasaman Nasiri, Reza Radbakht, Mohammad Abbaszadeh and Kosar Sa’adat in the cast, Tiwall.com reported.
In the story, Jean Valjean, is released from prison on parole after 19 years by Jean Javert, the officer in charge of the prison workforce. Valjean promptly breaks parole but later uses money from stolen silver to reinvent himself as a mayor and factory owner.
Javert vows to bring Valjean back to prison. Eight years later, Valjean becomes the guardian of a child named Cosette after her mother’s death, but Javert’s relentless pursuit means that peace will be a long time coming.
The play will remain on the stage of the Farhang Hall located at Natanz St., through December 26.
