FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD AT THE MINACK THEATRE
21 July 2014
Towards the end of the month the Miller Centre Theatre Company presents Far from the Madding Crowd at The Minack Theatre, Porthcurno.
The iconic open-air theatre, which was hewn from the rocks of a Porthcurno cliff top in the 1920s and 19302 by Rowena Cade, will host seven showings of Thomas Hardy's classic tale of love, tragedy and betrayal.
The show successfully fuses vivid storytelling with live folk songs and humour in the amazing surroundings of the Minack, which makes it a must see for visitors to Cornwall cottages.
The play sees Hardy create his first ever heroine, Bathsheba Everdene, a captivating, courageous but flawed young woman fighting to establish herself and live her life on her own terms. She is pursued by three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak the loyal shepherd, William Boldwood the lonely land-owner and the recklessly dashing Sergeant Troy.
