Program Notes

Five Fingers For Marseilles is the story of  young men (the ‘Five Fingers’) who stand up to brutal police oppression in Marseilles. One of them, Tau, kills two policemen, and is sentenced to 20 years in prison. When he gets out, the embitted “Lion of Marseilles” discovers his grown comrades are now in prominent positions in the town. But there’s also a vicious new threat afoot, and so Tau must reform the Five Fingers and take on old allies and new enemies.
