This year Hotbuckle join us as our guest performers for the February play with the classic Tess of the D’Urbervilles



“Why didn’t you tell me there was danger? Why didn’t you warn me?”

Thomas Hardy’s fictional masterpiece, Tess of the D’Urbervilles traces the life of the young country girl Tess Durbeyfield. Driven by family poverty to claim kinship with the wealthy D’Urberville family, the innocent Tess crosses paths with her ‘cousin’, the dissolute Alec and the gentleman, Angel Clare, with tragic results. Hardy’s heroine is one of the most moving in all of literature, and her story is hauntingly brought to life in this new version by Hotbuckle.


On Hotbuckle’s Wuthering Heights, “… beautifully handled … this is the company’s best yet” (BBC Radio Shropshire), and Far From the Madding Crowd, “… a magical production” (The Stage).
