The Mill on the Floss
by Helen Edmundson, Adapted from the novel by George Eliotdirected by Rachel Vernelle
Thursday 27th – Saturday 29th June 2019
The Carriageworks Main Space

Tom and Maggie Tulliver, siblings growing up at Dorlcote Mill on the River Floss, have an intense and abiding bond.

Maggie is intelligent, wilful and passionate; Tom is a practical, unforgiving boy, not cut our for the ‘book learning’ expected of him. As they grow, events strain their relationship. Both make choices dictated by their characters and their places in the world, driving the wedge deeper between them and culminating in tragedy.

George Eliot’s novel is no drawing-room affair of manners and this thrilling adaptation is theatrical and physical.

Tickets are on sale, available from the City Centre Box Office in the Town Hall and, before performances, from the Carriageworks Box Office in the Electric Press building on Millennium Square. Please call in person, or telephone 0113 376 0318. You can also book your tickets online.
