A vivid, emotional stage version of Mary Webb’s novel of rural passion, premiered by Shared Experience Theatre Company.

Incorporating traditional dances and folk songs, Gone to Earth tells the story of Hazel, an innocent and free-spirited seventeen-year-old child of nature living in rural Shropshire. But when both the wicked squire and the altruistic minister fall in love with her she is drawn into a world of earthly passions which threatens to destroy her – as simply and relentlessly as a Greek tragedy.
