Hotbuckle Productions present Far from the Madding Crowd
Far from the Madding Crowd is perhaps one of the most endearing and English of Hardy’s novels. It tells the story of the young farmer Gabriel Oak and his love for and pursuit of the elusive and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene. Her wayward nature however, leads her into the path of the dashing Sergeant Troy “... the past was yesterday; never, the day after” and the introverted and reclusive gentleman farmer, Mr Boldwood, whose love for her fills him with “.... a fearful sense of exposure” culminating almost inevitably in both tragedy and true love. With live music and their trademark energetic ‘ensemble style’, Hotbuckle brings this classic story lovingly to life in a way that only they can.
“an exceptionally slick, beautifully acted and necessarily inventive evening. The Company’s reputation is rightly rising.”
