Tess of the d’Urbervilles adapted and directed by Charmaine K Parkin.
Four actors play multiple roles in what is an enigmatic and fast paced telling of virtue, love and injustice, but above all the impact of this on the human condition.
Our interactive and engaging performances aim to make universal classic tales interesting and enjoyable for all ages, and hopefully encourage an enthusiasm for Thomas Hardy’s work.
We hope to bring to life the Wessex of the past and honour the beautiful countryside where the story takes place, whilst also highlighting the timeless issues that this story presents.
However, in true SISATA style there will still be fun, interaction, laughter and song to tie together this heart-breaking tale.
