Far from the Madding Crowd

Haunting...brooding...smouldering...dynamic drama
Written by Thomas Hardy
Adapted by Mark Healy
Directed by Paul Chesterton
Designed by Max Dorey

Performed by Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, Far from the Madding Crowd is the story of Bathsheba Everdene. Having inherited her father’s farm, Bathsheba finds herself playing mistress in a man’s world. She is pursued by three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak, a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching wilfulness; the handsome and reckless Sergeant Troy; and William Boldwood, a prosperous and obsessive landowner. But are any of them a match for the independent and spirited Bathsheba?
