Their mutual friendship leads to joy, love and his redemption.Set in the early years of the 19th Century, this heart-wrenching yet uplifting story is performed by an ensemble cast accompanied by music and songs of the period.Silas Marner is a GCSE set text on Edexcel, WJEC and Eduqas schools examination boards“...does the production...faithfully capture the cumulative effect of the novel’s chains of incident and commentary? The answer is that it does.” (Financial Times)
