Starting on Sunday, April 14, Victor Hugo's masterpiece Les Misérables will come to Maine Public Television in a six-part drama adaptation by multi award-winning screenwriter Andrew Davies. Dominic West stars as fugitive Jean Valjean, with David Oyelowo as his pursuer Inspector Javert and Lily Collins as the luckless single mother Fantine. Ellie Bamber and Josh O'Connor costar as the young lovers Cosette and Marius. Love, death, and the struggle for social justice in early 19th-century France are featured in this beautifully faithful retelling of one of the world’s most beloved stories.
We will be holding two community screenings of the series. The first screening will be held at The Lincoln Theater in Damariscotta in Damariscotta on Thursday, March 21 at 5:30 pm.
The second screening will take place at the Center Theatre for the Performing Arts in Dover-Foxcroft on Saturday, April 6 at 3:00 pm.
