Thérèse Raquin is a superb examination of corrupted morals, set in the notoriously dingy backstreets of Paris in the late 19th century. Thérèse lives a life of servitude and is married off to her sickly cousin in a loveless, arranged marriage. But her life is suddenly turned around when her husband’s friend, Laurent, arrives and they begin a passionate, feverish affair.

Beautifully paced and engaging theatre...an imaginative and immersive adaptation, directed with skill and style.

The Age

It is in fact a beautiful adaptation, with all the colour and energy of the novel, but re-imagined as pure drama.
