2016 Main Production

 

Greenwood-39-2

 

These are times of change…The New Hardy Players bring Under The Greenwood Tree to the stage at the Corn Exchange, where Thomas Hardy saw the original Hardy Players perform the first dramatization of this most light-hearted and humorous of the Wessex novels in 1910.

The 2016 adaptation has been written by renowned actor, playwright and director Jack Shepherd (Inspector Wycliffe) and cleverly tackles the social changes which rock the small community of Mellstock. The production features music and song from a live band, and brings to the stage some of the best-loved characters in Hardy for audiences to enjoy.

“There can be few better ways of welcoming the festive season than watching the New Hardy Players perform Thomas Hardy’s warm hearted story of Dorset country people of yesteryear which feature their traditional Christmas celebrations” Marian Cox at the dorset Echo
