Thomas Hardy’s popular and enduring novel, adapted for the stage by Mark Healy.
Having inherited her father’s farm, the spirited and feisty young Bathsheba Everdene finds herself playing mistress in a man’s world. She is pursued by three would-be lovers: the constant shepherd, Gabriel Oak; the obsessive landowner, William Boldwood; and the reckless Sergeant Troy. But are any of them a match for the headstrong and independent Bathsheba?
This edition includes notes by adaptor Mark Healy on producing the play yourself, including advice on cast size, staging, music and accents.
