Silas Marner at Theatre Royal


Silas Marner, the great Victorian epic novel, is thrillingly and theatrically brought to the stage in the bicentenary year of George Eliot’s birth by the acclaimed Conn Artists Theatre Company, following on from their hit production of The Four Men.

Wrongfully condemned and castout from society, a poor weaver, eaten up with bitterness and anger, becomes a doomed miser and recluse until he is forced to take in a young orphan girl. Their mutual friendship leads to joy, love and redemption.
