Haunting…brooding…smouldering…dynamic drama

Bristol Old Vic Theatre School make their annual visit to Wedmore as part of their West Country Tour.

They tell us that at the moment they are still planning that the tour will go ahead.

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?
