Thérèse Raquin by Emile Zola at the Southwark Playhouse

A new production of Emile Zola's Thérèse Raquin will be presented by Celia Dugua and Secret/Heart Theatre at the Southwark Playhouse in south London from 11 August to 3 September 2016, with an official opening on 15 August 2016.

"Trapped in a sexless marriage with her sickly cousin Camille, Thérèse Raquin embarks on an illicit, turbulent affair with her husband’s friend Laurent, that leads to madness and a horrifying conclusion."

The production will be directed by Sebastian Harcombe, with cast and creatives to be announced.

Secret/Heart is a new company set up by Sebastian Harcombe which aims to support graduates of UK drama schools to work as part of a repertory ensemble at the outset of their professional careers. Their most recent productions include Tony Kushner's 'A Bright Room Called Day', Corneille's 'The Illusion' and Herman Melville's 'Billy Budd'.

Tickets for the production are now on sale.
