Details: The source material is legendary. The characters are iconic. The questions are epic. Jean Valjean’s lifelong struggle to find and follow his own conscience asks the most profound questions of human existence: “What is justice? What is forgiveness? What is love? What would you die for?”
Poet, novelist, dramatist, and one of the greatest French writers of all time, Victor Hugo wrote about the political and social issues of his day. Les Misérables is his ‘call to arms’ to face what it means to be humane and compassionate, to love and to die, and to listen to the stories of silenced voices. Timeless issues that have continued to resonate today.
Theatre Smith-Gilmour is committed to creating theatre developed through an artistic process that gives expression and dignity to people’s imaginations and communicates stories of personal and universal meaning with a compassionate vision of the human condition. For almost 40 years, the company has been devising and touring original shows internationally.
The Les Misérables ensemble includes Mac Fyfe (Krapp’s Last Tape (director); Trudeau and The FLQ, The War of 1812, VideoCabaret), Dean Gilmour (Co-Artistic Director, Theatre Smith-Gilmour), Nina Gilmour (The Cherry Orchard, Chekhov Collective; As I Lay Dying, Theatre Smith-Gilmour), Benjamin Muir (As I Lay Dying, Theatre Smith-Gilmour; Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Hart House); Daniel Roberts (pool (no water), Cue6 Production; As I Lay Dying, Theatre Smith-Gilmour), and Diana Tso (Bakkhai, The Komagata Maru Incident, Stratford Festival; Chimerica, Canadian Stage). Michele Smith (Co-Artistic Director, Theatre Smith Gilmour) will direct the world premiere of this new theatrical adaptation based on the original French text.
