Far from the Madding Crowd

A classic from Thomas Hardy directed by Barbara Mews

One of the most loved of Thomas Hardy's novels telling the story of the young and beautiful Bathsheba Everdene.

Far from the Madding Crowd is set in rural Dorset during the 1840's and is a timeless tale of love, passion and relationships.

Farm owner Bathseba is headstrong and independent and happy to be unmarried-however she attracts three very differnt suitors, There is sheep farmer Gabriel Oak, who is captivated by her wilful spirit, Frank Troy ahandsom but reckless Sergeant and William Boldwood, an older and prosperous neighbour.

Bathsheba's choice turns out to be life changing for all three men and leads to both trgedy and true love.

Its themes of love , honour and betrayal are played out against a backdrop of the seamingly idyllic but often harsh realities of a farming community in Victorian England.

Readings and auditions will take place in January 2018 dates and time to be confirmed in the local press.
