The New Hardy Players bring the stories of Thomas Hardy to life through evocative dramatisations of his work
Coming in the next few months
Also this year we have some very exciting plans afoot.
There will be poetry readings by members of the New Hardy Players and the return of “Going the Rounds”
Later in the year there will also be performances of The Withered Arm, which could be called a moral tale that also gives a snapshot of life as it once was in rural southwest England, a part of the country Hardy called ‘Wessex’.

What we have been up to
A Few Crusted Character
During the Easter holidays a workshops were held for the younger members of the New Hardy Players with a focus on physical theater. This has led to the development of a production A Few Crusted Characters, which was performed at Maxgate house, to showcase their development of the performance so far.
Have a look at the video to see how they got on so far
We have also been busy with the Thomas Hardy’s birthday Celebrations and wreath laying and Tea with Lawrence directed by Andy Munroe.
2016 Main Production
Last years main performance was ” Under the Greenwood Tree”, Adapted by Jack Shepherd and Directed by Emma Hill/Tim Laycock
