The New Hardy Players bring their most ambitious production to date, combining live performance, film, and archive photography. Adapted for the stage by Philip Goulding, directed by Tim Laycock & Emma Hill, this production of The Mayor of Casterbridge combines the depth and subtlety of live performance with film and archive photography. It has a new musical score composed by Alastair Simpson and performed by Tatterdemalion. The talented cast is led by Mike Staddon (Michael Henchard) and Amelia Chorley (Elizabeth-Jane). Dorchester itself plays a major role in this exciting new production. Tickets are limited, so we advise booking early.
