'I shall do one thing in this life. That is love you, long for you and keep wanting you...till I die.'
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 shepard, 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 Far from the Maddening Crowd brings to life one of Thomas Hardy's most popular and enduring novels. It was first staged by English Touring Theatre around the UK.
