“Why didn’t you tell me there wasdanger? Why didn’t you warn me? Ladies know what to guard against, because theyread novels that tell them of these tricks; but I never had the chance ofdiscovering in that way;”


Perhaps Hardy’s fictionalmasterpiece, Tess of the D’Urbervilles traces the life of the young countrygirl Tess Durbeyfield. Driven by family poverty to claim kinship with thewealthy D’Urberville family, the innocent Tess crosses paths with her ‘cousin’,the dissolute Alec and the gentleman, Angel Clare, with tragic results. Hardy’sheroine is one of the most moving in all of literature, and her story ishauntingly 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).
