The Hunchback Of Notre Dame
Sunday 30 November and Sunday 7 December at 3pm
Graeae and BBC Radio Drama North are proud to present a radical radio dramatisation of Victor Hugo's classic tale of love, betrayal and moral courage.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame is a powerful story with characters on the margins of society, whose paths cross to create a gripping tale of spirituality, truth, beauty and the power of individual faith in historical Paris.
David Bower (Four Weddings and a Funeral) plays Quasimodo, the first time a deaf actor will have played the role in a broadcast piece.
This adaptation has been penned by Graeae's Literary Manager, Alex Bulmer, (Episode 1) and Skins writer Jack Thorne (Episode 2).
Where to Listen
The Hunchback of Notre Dame will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Sunday 30th November 2008 and Sunday 7th December 2008 at 3pm. You can listen again for 7 days on the BBC iPlayer.
