Mill on the Floss, The

Helen Edmundson (adapted from George Eliot)
 

A re-invention of George Eliot's classic story of loss, tragedy and the relentless nature of fate.

Outgrowing — but still hopelessly devoted to — her family, Maggie befriends the disfigured Phillip Wakem, son of a local lawyer. But their fathers become embroiled in a bitter legal dispute that only the prosperous Wakem can win, and the Tullivers find fate dealing them the first harsh hand of many. With their father dead, the family must face up to their cold future together.

Review
Not only reinvents the book, but pushes the boat of theatricality way beyond its usual moorings... The central concept is having three Maggies — a conceit that is thrillingly effective in performance -  Guardian
