Step back in time 90 years for a unique evening of live theatre at Max Gate.
We enjoy the company of Mr and Mrs Thomas Hardy, plus their illustrious literary guest, and a few of the colourful characters from Hardy’s novels.
While Mrs Hardy entertains in the dining room, the domestic staff gossip and grumble in the kitchen. Thomas struggles with a particularly awkward stanza in his study, and The Hardy Players enact a dramatic scene in the bedroom, complete with costumes, music and dancing.
