Far From the Madding Crowd

Thomas Hardy (adapted by Mark Healy)
Thomas Hardy’s famous love story brought to the stage

Having inherited her father’s farm, a spirited and feisty young woman, 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?
