Therese Raquin

16-17 June 2017
47 days from now

A Dirty Pretty Theatre & Critical Stages Production

A gripping corseted thriller based on Emile Zola’s landmark novel, Thérèse Raquin.

Set in the notoriously dingy backstreets of Paris in the late 19th century, Thérèse lives a life of servitude and is married off to her sickly cousin in a loveless, arranged marriage. But her life is suddenly turned around when her husband’s friend, Laurent, arrives and they begin a passionate, feverish affair. What follows in this masterpiece of French literature makes for a gripping, corseted thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat.

Newly adapted, Thérèse Raquin is a superb examination of corrupted morals.

There will be a Post Show Q&A with the cast after the Saturday night performance.
