Far from the Madding Crowd
by Thomas Hardy, Adapted by Mark Healy
Rousing staging of Thomas Hardy's popular classic adapted by Mark Healy
I shall do one thing in this life.
That is love you, long for you and keep wanting you 'til I die.
Thomas Hardy's much-loved classic is brought dramatically to life in this thrilling new production which fuses vivid story-telling, live folk-song and humour in a dynamic ensemble staging, directed by Kate Saxon.
Presented by English Touring Theatre, Mark Healy's powerful and evocative adaptation of Hardy's classic toured throughout the UK in 2008 to massive acclaim.
Based upon one of Hardy's most popular and enduring novels, Far from the Madding Crowd takes us on a theatrical journey through Hardy country, following a passionate young girl propelled into womanhood by her experiences of love and loss.
Haunting... brooding... smouldering... dynamic drama.
Captured live at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Guildford in November 2008.
