The French Lieutenant's Woman archiveAn extraordinary theatrical experience, The French Lieutenant s Woman is a timeless story of forbidden love, temptation and the fight for personal freedom. Regarded as one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century. The year is 1867. The cloaked figure of a young woman stands alone at the end of a sea rampart; her back turned against the harsh Victorian society that judges her. In a search to discover the truth about her, Charles Smithson propels himself into dangerous waters and must risk everything he has.

User Reviews

USER (13Oct06): Do not miss this production. Excellent acting in a clever adaption of the novel. Even if you have read the book and seen the film, the tensions evoked in this production keeps you gripped for the two and a half hours. The multi-level set is used effectively although in some theatres sight-lines may be a problem. The direction is tight and the cast are excellent at changing roles. Ernestina's silliness should be down-played to make Charles' choice less obvious, but this is a minor criticism of a production that deserves larger audiences than Cambridge was providing.
