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?

Mark Healy’s adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s Far from the Madding Crowd was first performed by English Touring Theatre in 2008.

This edition includes notes on producing the play yourself, including advice on cast size, staging, music and accents.

‘Haunting… brooding… smouldering… dynamic drama’
