Tess of the d’Urbervilles
Book Gerry Flanagan
Music & lyrics Pippa Cleary

A new musical adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s dramatic tale.

Free-spirited country girl Tess Durbeyfield knows nothing of the world outside her own village. When she is caught between her manipulative cousin Alec and the handsome Angel Clare, a dark love story unfolds leading to seduction, abandonment, and murder. Tragedy is unavoidable as Tess find she is powerless to change her fate.

Tess of the d’Urbervilles is dramatically set against a backdrop of Wessex countryside and Winchester. Director Gerry Flanagan (The King Lear) alongside Composer Pippa Cleary (The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 ¾) bring this powerful story to life. The result is both humorous and heart-rending.

Youth Music Theatre UK are the leading national company for young people, with alumni including Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Call the Midwife’s Charlotte Richie – see the UK’s next generation of talent here. Presented In association with South Hill Arts Centre, Bracknell.
