Silas Marner, the great Victorian epic novel, is thrillingly and theatrically brought to the stage in the bicentenary year of George Eliot’s birth by the acclaimed Conn Artists Theatre Company.
Wrongfully condemned and outcast from society, a poor weaver, eaten up with bitterness and anger, becomes a doomed miser and recluse, until he is forced to take in a young orphan girl. Their mutual friendship leads to joy, love and his redemption.
Set in the early years of the 19th Century, this heart-wrenching yet uplifting story is performed by an ensemble cast accompanied by music and songs of the period.
Silas Marner is a GCSE set text on Edexcel, WJEC and Eduqas schools examination boards
