Along comes his father’s business partner’s wife, Mrs Robinson, who makes him an offer he can’t refuse. And so begins one of the most famous illicit affairs ever written. But will this be the solution that Benjamin is looking for? Should he follow his head, or his heart?

Les Miserables; The Memoirs of Jean Valjean,

A dramatic new non-musical adaptation of Victor Hugo’s classic novel, takes to the stage in Torbay, over several days in September 2013  by an awardwinning Brixham theatre company.  
Les Miserables, set between 1815 and 1832, in France, tells the story of ex-convict Jean Valjean, who, after being imprisoned for 19 years for stealing a loaf of bread, breaks parole, becomes the mayor of a town and discovers redemption and love, while all the time ruthlessly pursued by the law. The story culminates on the streets of Paris in 1832, during the June uprising, when Marius, a young law student and revolutionary, falls in love with Jean’s adopted daughter Cosette, and Jean must save both Marius and himself.

A production with a talented cast from across South Devon, The South Devon Players theatre company are an award-winning, completely non-profit community/ amateur theatre company founded in 2005, based in Brixham and featured on BBC 1 national television in January 2013. We mainly specialise in shows about local history, but sometimes expand to wider historical events (as in the case of this production) as well. We are family friendly, lively and welcoming to all who wish to be involved in theatre at any level. In the past, members have gone on to perform in major feature films, and train at RADA. Our membership ranges from age 10 to 65, and from professional performers to complete beginners, all of whom work as part of a team to create new exciting shows which are then brought to our local community.

Les Miserables: The Memoirs of Jean Valjean is directed by one of the theatre company’s founders; Miss Laura J, who as well as being a professional performer and model in her own right, also holds a Masters degree in teaching performing arts, as well as degrees in film production, and photography – and has performed in another production of Les Miserables in the past, elsewhere. She is accompanied by Mrs Louise German, as assistant director.  Louise is the other co-founder of the South Devon Players, who has 40 years of community and amateur theatre experience in her own right.
