Description

A story of lust, madness and destruction set in the backstreets of Paris. Based on Emile Zola's classic novel. The beautiful but doomed heroine is trapped in a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin, Camille. Every Thursday evening she watches her domineering aunt, Madame Raquin, play dominoes... until one day her husband brings along an old friend, the alluring and athletic Laurent. As Laurent and The're`se embark on an illicit affair, a turbulent passion is unleashed that drives them ultimately to violence and murder. Helen Edmundson's sensuous adaptation of Therese Raquin premiered at the Theatre Royal, Bath, in July 2014.

Author Biography

Helen Edmundson adapted Anna Karenina, The Mill on the Floss and War and Peace for Shared Experience. She also wrote the National Theatre's enormously successful dramatisation of Coram Boy, and Swallows and Amazons seen in the West End. Emile Zola (1840-1902) is one of the best-known 19th century novelists, famous for his espousal of Naturalism. Apart from Therese Raquin, his best known novels include Nana, La Bete Humaine and Germinal.
