Grand and uplifting, Les Miserables is a powerful affirmation of the human spirit and one of the most popular musicals of all time. This tale of passion and revolution in 19th-century France won seven Tony Awards on Broadway and was adapted into an Oscar-winning film. Drury Lane kicks off its 30th anniversary season with this sweeping tale of romance, passion, suspense and redemption set against the stormy backdrop of the French Revolution. You'll be immersed in the tale of ex-convict Jean Valjean's struggle for redemption while trying to outrun the determined police inspector Javert, and the innocent love of his adopted daughter Cosette for the revolutionary and student, Marius. It's a celebration of the human struggle for justice and happiness in the face of hardship, carried forward on a gorgeous score, including the beloved songs "I Dreamed a Dream," "Do You Hear the People Sing?" and more.

The war is over but the violence continues.
In a new version of Euripedes’ Greek classic, one of Ireland’s great contemporary playwrights, Frank McGuinness, explores the tragedy beyond war’s end. Hecuba-widow to the defeated Trojan king and slave to the conquering Greek King Agamemnon-has lost her country and most of her family. When she learns of the death of her last surviving children, Hecuba can no longer cope with the unspeakable horrors forced upon her, and is consumed by her rage and quest for revenge.
