A gripping psychological thriller adapted for the stage by Émile Zola himself from his own notorious novel, in a version by Nicholas Wright.
Stifled by an oppressive mother-in-law and a sickly husband, Thérèse Raquin falls passionately for another man. Their feverish affair drives the lovers to an act of terrible desperation, which catapults them headlong into a world more claustrophobic than the one they sought to destroy.
This English version of Thérèse Raquin was first staged at the National Theatre, London, in 2006.
‘Nicholas Wright’s outstandingly well-written and acute new version… unforgettable’
‘A potent, dark group portrait of selfishness and obsession’
