The Mill on the Floss (stage version)

By George Eliot Adapted by Helen Edmundson

Paperback £9.99£7.99

A re-invention of George Eliot's classic story of loss, tragedy and the relentless nature of fate.

Outgrowing - but still hopelessly devoted to - her family, Maggie befriends the disfigured Phillip Wakem, son of a local lawyer. But their fathers become embroiled in a bitter legal dispute that only the prosperous Wakem can win, and the Tullivers find fate dealing them the first harsh hand of many. With their father dead, the family must face up to their cold future together.

Helen Edmundson's adaptation of George Eliot's The Mill on the Floss was first performed by Shared Experience Theatre Company in 1994.

Press Quotes

'Not only reinvents the book, but pushes the boat of theatricality way beyond its usual moorings... The central concept is having three Maggies - a conceit that is thrillingly effective in performance'


'More compelling and fully human than the original'

The Times

'With rare theatrical vibrancy, Helen Edmundson's free adaptation distils the essence of George Eliot's feminist novel'
