Wrongfully condemned and castout 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 redemption.
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, following on from their hit production of The Four Men.
The heart moving action, set in the early years of the 19th century, is performed by an ensemble cast of seven actors accompanied by music and songs of the period.
★★★★★ “Muir, in the title role, gave a magnificently nuanced performance, moving through a range of emotions culminating in a thundering rage when Eppie, the child that he raised, is to be taken from him. His subsidence into tears, when she elects to stay with him, was most moving.” – The Argus
★★★★ “It is, in my opinion, the company’s best work to date” … “not only did I leave feeling inspired, it also left me feeling very proud to see such fantastic work created in Worthing.” – Theatre South East
★★★★ “Strong, vivid and emotional storytelling” – Remote Goat
