Far From the Madding Crowd

Far From the Madding Crowd is one Hardy book we have not yet attempted to put on stage, but, of course, there is the big film of it coming out on May 1, starring Carey Mulligan and Michael Sheen.

If you know where to look, it also includes three of the New Hardy Players: Chris Pullen, Howard Payton (who directs our performance this year) and Alison Payton.

We haven’t seen the film yet, but we managed to catch a very brief glimpse of Chris in one of the trailers, though we hardly recognised him with his impressive sideburns – made, he tells us, of yak hair! He’s the face immediately to the right of the lady in the foreground (Carey Mulligan).
