Far From the Madding Crowd

Far From the Madding Crowd $12.99

Jessica Swale from Thomas Hardy

Published by Samuel French Ltd

Large Mixed Cast

When Bathsheba Everdene inherits a farm from her uncle, no-one expects her to run it alone

But our spirited young heroine will not be deterred and eagerly takes up the gauntlet

She rises impressively to the challenges of sheep farming, but the trials of the heart are harder to overcome

Caught between a pair of suitors - the kind and dependable shepherd Gabriel Oak and the prosperous eligible bachelor William Boldwood, her choice seems hard enough

Then the dashing Sergeant Troy appears over the horizon, with a swagger in his step and a dangerous secret in his past

Who will she choose?

Adapted by Jessica Swale, whose play Blue Stockings was nominated for an Evening Standard Award
