The Swan Theatre Company presents
Tess of the D'Urbervilles
By Thomas Hardy, adapted by Michael Fry
Directed by Mark Payne
Fri 11th to Sat 19th November (excl. Sun13th) @ 7.45pm, curtain
All the tragic majesty of Thomas Hardy's most celebrated novel
is captured in this enchanting and exciting adaptation. Tess's
story - an exploration of love and tragedy, an angry and powerful
rebuke to the morality and hypocrisy of Victorian England - is a
familiar one, regarded as a classic of English literature. For
those who don't know the story, this adaptation will be a thrilling
theatrical experience; and for those who do, it's an enlightening
and fascinating re-evaluation of the text.
Join us to witness a re-creation of Dorset landscapes, threshing
machines, pony and trap, and a herd of cows, to say nothing of the
drama of a young woman setting out to find her way in the world...
