The story of Edmund Dantes, self-styled Count of Monte Cristo, is told with consummate skill. The victim of a miscarriage of justice, Dantes is fired by a desire for retribution and empowered by a stroke of providence. In his campaign of vengeance, he becomes an anonymous agent of fate. The sensational narrative of intrigue, betrayal, escape, and triumphant revenge moves at a cracking pace. Dumas’ novel presents a powerful conflict between good and evil embodied in an epic saga of rich diversity that is complicated by the hero’s ultimate discomfort with the hubristic implication of his own actions.

 

THUNDER ROAD THEATRE COMPANY is a Harrogate Theatre associate company and comprises thrusting young bucks who bring fervour and physicality to classic texts, specialising in stripped back, story-focused, multi-role productions. The companies first 
production Hyde drew critical acclaim across the board. 

The company has a history of overcoming theatrical challenges. Artistic director Alex Moran faced a series of trials when he was invited to perform a one-man show, TALES FROM THE BLACKJACK, in the back room of a pub during Preston’s very first Fringe 
Festival in 2009. With only a week and a shoe-string budget to develop the show, it went on to be praised by critics and was commissioned by The Lowry, where it won four awards – most notably for Alex: The Buxton Fringe Award for best actor and The 
Manchester Evening News Award for best performance in a studio production.
