Tess of the d'Urbervilles


Spellbinding music. Dazzling storytelling.

Free-spirited country girl Tess Durbeyfield knows nothing of the world outside her own village. When she is caught between her manipulative cousin Alec and the handsome Angel Clare, a dark love story unfolds leading to seduction, abandonment, and murder. Tragedy is unavoidable as Tess find she is powerless to change her fate.

Gerry Flanagan directs a comic and heart-rending adaptation of Tess of the d’Urbervilles that deftly combines compelling songs by Pippa Cleary (The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13¾), with vibrant storytelling and physical comedy to amazing effect.

This powerful new musical adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s classic tale is brought to you by YMT who have a reputation for creating new musical works of the highest quality. Past credits include Olivier Award-nominated Loserville.
