BRISTOL OLD VIC THEATRE SCHOOL PRESENT FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD
By Thomas Hardy, Adapted by Mark Healy
Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, Far from the Madding Crowd is the story of Bathsheba Everdene. Having inherited her father’s farm, Bathsheba finds herself playing mistress in a man’s world. She is pursued by three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak, a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching wilfulness; the handsome and reckless Sergeant Troy; and William Boldwood, a prosperous and obsessive landowner. But are any of them a match for the independent and spirited Bathsheba?
This amateur production of Thomas Hardy’s ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’ has been adapted by Nick Healy and is presented by special arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
