Emma Bovary, Flaubert’s legendary romantic heroine, yearns for a world that is brighter, more thrilling and infinitely more glamorous than the one she knows. Married to a dull country doctor and stuck in a village in Normandy, she craves exotic adventures, places and people.

Her passion for the unknown is dangerous, however, and leads her ultimately into reckless affairs and crippling debt: every effort she makes to escape her mediocre surroundings only tightens the bonds that enslave her to a small town and a dead marriage.

The novel is a world classic, one of the great 19th century treatments of female discontent in a world owned and ruled by men. Anna Karenina and Hedda Gabler are soul sisters to Madam Bovary and, as in those dramas, the gigantic female personality at the centre of the action, can be seen as heroic or just plain selfish. From either perspective Emma Bovary can clearly be viewed as a shrew who will never be tamed.

This adaptation uses an ensemble approach to set Emma within the cast of bores, frauds, charlatans and faithless lovers which Flaubert has created with such empathy, wit and satirical ferocity. He claimed that he wished to portray all of Normandy in the book. This play uses the devices of Greek tragedy to emphasise the qualities of the story that lift it even further out of a specific time and place and give it the historical and dramatic reach of a true classic.
