Carriageworks Theatre - Main Space
by Helen Edmundson. Adapted from the novel by George Eliot.
George Eliot’s novel was published in 1860, but is no drawing-room affair of manners. Maggie Tulliver is intelligent, wilful and passionate. Her brother Tom is practical and unforgiving. As Maggie struggles to find her place in the world, she has to battle the strictures put upon her sex and the disapproval of the brother she loves above all else. We follow her desperate attempts to please others while remaining true to herself - she is a truly a heroine for our time.
