The Play

Adaptation of George Elliot's novel. Set in 1836 Maggie Tulliver is the daughter of a miller in the English midlands. Like many nineteenth century literary girls, her intelligence and emotional capacity outflank those of her family and this causes problems. She is devoted to her brother Tom but he is hopelessly limited in his understanding. Maggie turns to Philip Waken, son of a local lawyer. Disaster strikes their relationship as Mr Tulliver and Waken find themselves enemies over a legal dispute that leaves Tulliver bankrupt.
