Thérèse Raquin
11 Aug - 3 Sept, 2016 (Southwark Playhouse)

 

Trapped in a sexless marriage with her sickly cousin Camille, Thérèse Raquin embarks on an illicit, turbulent affair with her husband’s friend Laurent, that leads to madness and a horrifying conclusion.

Written in 1867, Émile Zola’s seminal novel proved a literary sensation. It’s honest and powerful portrayal of the overwhelming force of human desire remains shocking to this day.
