This performance is a rehearsed reading.

“Did you say the stars were worlds, Tess?”
“Yes.”
“Which do we live on – a splendid one or a blighted one?”
“A blighted one.”

Tess is Barrel Organ’s adaptation of Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy. A young woman endures a life full of consequence and repercussions because of an event which was forced upon her. The story we embark on is already wrapped up and over…but what if it’s not? What happens if we take the reigns? Is it possible for a 21st century woman to retell a story written by a 19th century man?

Commissioned by and developed at Camden People’s Theatre, with support from The Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester.

Part of Warwick Arts Centre’s Emerge Festival.
