The text of the highly successful version of L'ASSOMMOIR produced at the West Yorkshire Playhouse by the acclaimed team of Jane Gibson, Sue Lefton, Anthony Ingle and Stephen Wyatt. An ensemble piece in words, music and movement. Cast of five women and four men. "Zola's teeming, remorseless view of labouring life in 19th-century Paris translates excellently into vivid theatrical terms.. The story is told with superb economy and invention and without any recourse to a spoken, linking narrative." Jeffrey Wainwright in The Independent. "Theatre is swarming with adaptations of novels. Some are better than others and Stephen Wyatt's version of L'Assommoir is amongst the best I've seen" Michael Schmidt in The Dialy Telegraph. "This fine stage version." Michael Coveney in The Observer
