Reward: 1000 Francs: (Mille francs de récompense)
Ilana Walder-Biesanz, translator
In Victor Hugo's play 'Reward: 1000 Francs', a family on the brink of financial ruin is threatened with the revelation of dangerous secrets. An unscrupulous banker offers to save them, in exchange for the daughter’s hand in marriage. Their prospects seem grim, but a witty thief decides to become their guardian angel. The play received a French revival by acclaimed director Laurent Pelly in 2010. The performance toured to Korea in 2014, and a Korean translation of the play was published to mark the occasion. This is the first English translation of the play to be published.
