What is it?
Myriad Productions presents The Count of Monte Cristo, adapted by Connie Stephens. Young Edmond Dantes has it all; the love of the beautiful Mercedes, a promising career of adventure on the high seas and a remarkably well-balanced relationship with his father. But all is not as rosy as it seems, for Edmond is the unwitting victim of three envious acquaintances who devise a scheme to falsely accuse him of treason. Sentenced to life in prison, Dantes must find a means to escape the impenetrable walls of the Chateau d’If, discover the whereabouts of Mercedes and exact a terrible revenge upon the men who robbed him of his future.
Alexandre Dumas’ formidable page-turner is brought to the stage in this rollicking new adaptation. An epic story of fate and fury, revenge and hubris, The Count of Monte Cristo is the ultimate tale of vigilante justice.
