Dorchester Arts and Poonamallee Productions presents
'A Pure Woman'
Based on true events, Thomas Hardy, 84, has an affair of the heart with the 20-something Dorset woman playing Tess in the local amateur Hardy Players’ production - which drives Hardy’s second wife, Florence, in her 40s, into a jealous rage. Within this highly theatrical love triangle, a deeply moving portrait of a marriage in extremis is played out.
Poonamallee Productions previously visited The Plough with Michael Morpurgo’s ‘An Elephant in the Garden’, which also starred Alison Reid.
