Sifted by an oppressive mother-in-law and a sickly husband, Therese 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 psychological thriller, adapted for the stage by Zola himself from his notorious novel, published in 1867, was staged in 2006 at the National Theatre, London, in a version by Nicholas Wright.
