Background to Production:
Geoffrey Beevers was drawn to adapting the original book for the stage after having done this previously with Eliot`s novel, Adam Bede.It proved to be quite a challenge as it was one of her shortest novels and it was difficult to bring children into major roles in the theatre,especially when the action of the play takes place over a span of about 30 years.
The play is full of mystery and legend and is about despair and salvation.
Items of Interest in the Programme:
Background information on the cast and other members of the production.
An interesting article about the subject matter of the play and the links to the social aspects at that time-many of the problems now relating to current days issues.
The production was presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd 24-32 Stephenson Way,London.
