Haunting...brooding...smouldering...dynamic drama

Written by Thomas Hardy

Adapted by Mark Healy

Directed by Paul Chesterton

Designed by Max Dorey

 

Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, Far from the Madding Crowd is the story of Bathsheba Everdene. Having inherited her father’s farm, Bathsheba finds herself playing mistress in a man’s world. She is pursued by three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak, a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching wilfulness; the handsome and reckless Sergeant Troy; and William Boldwood, a prosperous and obsessive landowner. But are any of them a match for the independent and spirited Bathsheba?

 

This amateur production of ‘Far From The Madding Crowd’ is presented by special arrangement with Nick Hern Books

As soon as I visited the School, I fell in love with the place. Perhaps it sounds a bit irrational, but sometimes you get a vibe - and you just know! BOVTS gave me all the tools I needed to prepare for a career as an actor. Sahir Mehta, MA Professional Acting, 2018
