In 2013 PVADS put on a spectacular adaptation of Les Misérables as a stage play – not the musical!
Written by Nettie Brown from the novel by Victor Hugo, set in the June Rebellions of 1832 in Paris.
This was a truly professional production by both adult and youth members of PVADS. We had a stellar cast, an incredible set including a moving barricade, outstanding lighting (with pyrotechnics of course!) contemporary songs and music, video projections, period costumes from our own wardrobe – it was hard work but absolutely brilliant!
On the 14th July we also think of Bastille Day in France. The beginning of the French Revolution marked by the storming of the Bastille in 1789.
