Adapted from the Whitbread Award-winning novel by Rose Tremain, commissioned by The Ambassadors Theatre Group, London. For production in 2007.

I'm dumbfounded by how much, and in what a pitch of intensity and liveliness, the book has been captured in the show. It dances off the page and into the audience's heart. And by the time Will and Cattlebury welcome Merivel back to Bidnold, everyone will weeping their eyes out... having laughed a lot along the way. This is truly a dazzling piece. 
Rose Tremain
