Alexandre Dumas's classic tale comes to the National Theatre in a theatrical adventure for family audiences.

Edmond Dantes ? illiterate young sailor of Marseilles ? is drawn into conspiring with the exiled Napoleon and imprisoned for ten years. Incarcerated in a desolate gaol with no-one but a mad monk for company, Dantes begins an unconventional education.

As his enemies become more powerful, all hope of justice and of a reunion with his sweetheart appear to be gone. Still, Dantes clings to hope. Eventually, his chance comes, he escapes his prison, adopts a disguise and the Count of Monte Cristo is born.

Timothy Sheader, Artistic Director of Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, makes his National Theatre debut directing Richard Bean's new adaptation.
