Paris, 1831. Once again as the threat of revolution looms over the city, a traveling band of players return to tell Victor Hugo’s classic tale of survival, injustice, and love.

In 1482, set against the shadows of Notre Dame Cathedral, a priest and a hunchback both fall for the mysterious and beautiful Esmerelda who longs to find her long-lost mother. When the unhappy pair try to take matters into their own hands they set off a chain of events that no one can control.

Promptly enough, revolution sweeps over the city of Paris and the mob breaks against the walls of the cathedral. Will the hunchback find true love? Will the priest save his soul? And will it take the people of Paris to save Esmerelda?

Tickets: July 1 to August 6 (previews) – all seats £14. August 7 to September 1 – Adult £18, Children under 16 £14, Family of 4 £55 and Family of 6 £80.

Iris Theatre’s Hamlet continues at St Paul’s Church until July 27, 2019.
